The Graduate Student Government is an organization, sponsored by the Office of Graduate and Professional Education, which provides advocacy on behalf of and social and professional programming for graduate students at the University of Delaware. Every graduate student is represented in the GSG by a senator from his/her academic program, and every graduate student is welcome to participate in all GSG meetings and events. In fact, every graduate student is already a member of GSG! I encourage you to visit one of our meetings on the second Thursday of each month in 103 Gore Hall, or consider getting involved with program planning or advocacy on one of the GSG committees. Additionally, there are several unrepresented programs, which you can find out more about on our Senators page.
GSG has several upcoming events for the Fall 2016 semester:
Thursday, September 15: Welcome Back Event: Meet & Greet on the Green – 4:30 – 6:00 PM with refreshments and activities outside The Green by Gore Hall (click the link to register). This is a fun and casual opportunity to meet other students, including the representative from your program, while enjoying the collegiate setting in view of Memorial Hall. Following the welcome back will be the first general meeting of the GSG, where the focus will be a discussion of the University proposal to consider changing Spring Break to coincide with St. Patrick’s Day. All are welcome to attend, and you are encouraged to share your perspectives on this issue. I look forward to seeing you at one or both of these!
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can help you get involved with the GSG or if I can answer any questions or concerns you have.
