Who Are We?

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) of Vanderbilt University serves currently enrolled graduate students. It is a representative body consisting of one representative from each graduate department of the University.

As an organization, we have two primary goals.

  • We coordinate academic, social, and other activities significant to the graduate community. We strive to promote community among graduate students, as well as graduate student integration into the university community. All graduate students are welcome to attend and participate in GSC meetings, parties, and academic events.
  • We work to ascertain and represent graduate student opinions and concerns, facilitating communication between graduate students, administration, and faculty.

How can you participate?

  • Come to our 2018-2019 General Body Meetings in Alumni Hall Room 201 (unless otherwise stated):

September 6, 6-7pm
