Welcome!

The Graduate Student Government (GSG) serves all students enrolled in graduate programs across the University of Delaware (UD).

We offer academic, professional, and social programming for all graduate students, and are supported in our activities by the Graduate College.

Every graduate student is represented in the GSG by an elected senator from their 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!
We encourage you to attend any of our meetings, get involved with program planning or advocacy on one of the GSG’s committees, or run for election as a senator, officer, or Graduate College Council representative.

We represent the graduate students across different programs at UD

Announcements and Upcoming Events

GSG’s statement against gender-based violence – October 13, 2021

“The Graduate Student Government condemns the horrific incident of gender-based violence of October 8th that was perpetrated by a UD student, who has now been separated from the university. The GSG further recognizes that this incident was one in a long series of assaults that have marred UD and the surrounding community of Newark. We condemn all such acts. In the aftermath of this event, we want to affirm our commitment to upholding a culture of safety and non-violence for all at UD and the surrounding community. We call on all members of the community to uphold GSG’s commitment—including administration, faculty, staff, students, and City of Newark leadership. We also want to acknowledge that this is a deeply distressing time for everyone and offer our own resources as well those of the University. Resources include: Sexual Offense Support (SOS), the Center for Counseling and Student Development, the Office of Equity and Inclusion, and incident reporting via the UD Helpline.”

– Deborah Drain, GSG Parliamentarian & Roxy Evande, GSG Chair of Engagement and Outreach

GSG’s Response to the protest near the North Green, September 29, 2021

“The Graduate Student Government condemns the protest that was allowed to take place along the public sidewalk adjacent to the North Green today. The GSG supports multiculturalism, the celebration of all LGBTQIA+ identities, and any/all interfaith initiatives. This protest is not indicative of who we are as a university. It flies in the face of our goal this year to ensure the University of Delaware has a graduate experience inclusive of all the diverse voices of a 21st century community. GSG will lend its resources to anyone deeply affected by what transpired here today.”

– Bill Repetto, GSG President
