The Graduate Student Advisory Council (“GSAC”) is comprised of graduate student representatives from each degree program. GSAC meets monthly during Fall and Spring semesters to address issues of concern to graduate students, plan activities, and make recommendations to the Graduate School, program directors, and the Graduate Educational Policy Committee.  GSAC members also serve on Graduate School appeal committees and Honor Council.  Additionally, each academic year, one member of GSAC is elected to serve on the University Council.

GSAC is overseen by the Dean of the Graduate School and the Assistant Director of Student Services.
