Our Mission

The Graduate Student Government seeks to create a forum for graduate student advocacy while facilitating communication between students, faculty, and administration at the University of Delaware. The GSG supports campus-wide activities facilitating the graduate student professionalism and collegiality. In addition, the GSG seeks to influence the course of the University (1) through representation on university committees, (2) by expressing the views of the student body to the administration, and (3) by issuing statements of our position to the administration and media.

Our Logo

Our logo pays homage to our old logo featuring the same two concepts of community building and advocacy, but incorporates the addition of the Biden School and Graduate College.

Each college is represented by a column shape. The triangular base and top represent advocacy. Mirroring the shape of a speaker, these represent the GSG’s hearing of each school’s concerns and in turn voicing them to the greater UD population. Serving a dual purpose, this shape also represents that of a greek building column, showing the strength of each individual college. The woven pattern serves to show the community between graduate students in each college, overlapping with each other creating a strong fabric of graduate studies.

The negative space between each column creates the shape of double ended arrows, looking back at where graduate studies started and ahead to the future. The dark blue box containing the woven pattern represents the graduate college, housing all of the graduate studies.
