What We Do

The Graduate Student Council serves as the main support organization for graduate students. The Graduate Student Council is also an advocate for clarification of graduate student employment and serves to protect the rights of graduate students. The Graduate Student Council is a member of several committees and programs concerning graduate student affairs; the council also attends faculty senate meetings. The council works for the benefit of the University community and serves as an advocate and resource for ASU-J students. The council works to recognize, foster, and promote outstanding leadership and high academic achievement among graduate and doctorial students.

Why It Is Important

The GSC is the voice of ASU-J graduate students. As an organization, the GSC acts as a liaison between students and the administration, ensuring that student concerns are heard, information is distributed, and student success is promoted. The Graduate Student Council works to fulfill ASU’s goal of becoming a national research university. The GSC has the opportunity and obligation to support both academic and professional growth; they are positioned to supper and enable collaborative efforts and enrichment opportunities.
