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 first Thursday of each month in 126 Lerner 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.
