About Us

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) advocates for all CSU graduate & professional students within departments, the university, the state, and the nation. GSC also plans social and professional events for graduate students and their families. 

The mission of the Graduate Student Council is to foster a sense of worth and camaraderie among graduate students; to encourage and recognize that a diverse and inclusive student body strengthens our community; to listen to the needs and concerns of the graduate student body through representatives and amplify their voices to the Graduate School. Additionally, the GSC provides professional development and social opportunities, procures funds for graduate student organizations, and provides quarterly awards for supply and travel.
