ABOUT THE GRADUATE STUDENT COUNCIL:
The GSC is the governing body of the GSA, an organization made up of all nonprofessional graduate students. All students who are getting a graduate degree other than a MD, DMD, JD, or MEng are members of the GSA. The GSC is comprised of executive officers and representatives from each department in SIGS. GSC helps set policies and creates programming to support graduate students. These representatives are your fellow graduate students, both Masters and Doctoral. The responsibility of representatives from each department is to attend GSC meetings (held monthly) and promote and engage in bi-directional communication with fellow students within their respective departments. GSC meetings are held to update students on important information pertaining to them, to discuss graduate concerns, and to offer a forum for communication between graduate students to improve the graduate experience at UofL. The representatives and officers on the council then allocate those funds to best serve graduate student's needs at UofL. Departments in "active" and "probation" status with the GSC are eligible for Travel Funding for graduate students; more information about travel funding is available here.
