What is GSG?

The Graduate Student Government, or GSG serves graduate students in several important ways. Acting as a liaison between the administration and graduate students at Michigan Tech, we advocate on students' behalf and provide opportunities for personal and professional growth. 

GSG represents the interests of the graduate student population to the University's administration. With representatives from every graduate department on campus, GSG plays an important role in shaping the graduate experience at Michigan Tech. GSG also has representatives on most standing University committees ranging in scope from health care to campus diversity to entertainment. GSG works to enrich the intellectual, social and professional lives of graduate students.

The council is the main forum for the discussion of matters of interest regarding graduate education and research programs.
