The Graduate Student Council serves as the main support organization for graduate students. Graduate Student Council is also an advocate for clarification of graduate student employment and serves to protect the rights of graduate students. The council works for the benefit of the University community and serves as an advocate and resource for A-State students. The council works to recognize, foster, and promote outstanding leadership and high academic achievement among graduate and doctoral students.


The GSC is the voice of A-State 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 A-State'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 support and enable collaborative efforts and enrichment opportunities.
