Welcome to the Vanderbilt Graduate Student Council

The Graduate Student Council of Vanderbilt University serves currently enrolled graduate students. It is a representative body consisting of one representative from each graduate department of the University.

As an organization we have two primary goals.

  • We coordinate academic, social, and other activities significant to the graduate community. We strive to promote community amongst graduate students, as well as graduate student integration into the university community. All graduate students are welcome to attend and participate in GSC meetings, parties, and academic events.
  • We work to ascertain and represent graduate student opinions and concerns, facilitating communication between graduate students, administration, and faculty.

How can you participate?

  • Keep an eye out for e-mails, flyers, and website postings advertising social, academic, and service opportunities. Come and enjoy all our events!
  • Become your department’s representative or fill in for your department rep when they can’t make it to a meeting!
