The GSG organizes many different events, ranging from casual to formal, social to academic, and independent to co-sponsored. We have two committees that focus on these events:

1. Events Committee (Chair: Yuliya Brel): Focuses on the two major annual events of the GSG, which is the Graduate Student Gala and the Graduate Research Forum, co-sponsored by the Office of Graduate & Professional Education

2. Social Committee (Chair: John Stout): Responsible for all other events, including UD Night @ Yuletide at Winterthur, regularly scheduled Meet & Greets, and all casual events.

3. Communications Committee (Chair: Eric Chen): Manages social media, website, and other online and on-campus presence to disseminate GSG event information and dates.
