Graduate Student Government
Welcome to the site of the
Graduate Student Government (GSG) of the Graduate School of Arts and Science
(GSAS) at NYU!
The Graduate Student Government (GSG) is the official student government organization for the Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS) at New York University. The primary goal of the Graduate Student Government is to promote the various interests of the greater GSAS graduate student community. The GSG accomplishes this charge in the following ways:
- GSG assists in coordinating student life programming. It develops student life programs to enhance the sense of community across the Graduate School of Arts and Science.
- GSG Executive Board members serve on GSAS and University committees. Each member of the GSG Executive Board serves on administrative and policy-making committees to represent constituents on issues related to financial aid, graduate curriculum, information technology, University Senate and libraries.
- GSG provides Student Life Grants to departmental student organizations. It awards grants to departmental student organizations to assist in supporting various student life initiatives designed to enhance students’ experiences within and among GSAS academic departments. Grant funding, for example, can be used to support student organization's participation in conferences, colloquia, community building social events and student/faculty mixers.
- GSG enhances student life across the graduate student community. It facilitates interaction between graduate students from across the academic disciplines in the Humanities, Social Science and Science at GSAS.
The Graduate Student Government strongly encourages broad participation from certificate, master’s and doctoral degree program candidates as well as from across the academic disciplines within GSAS – in the Humanities, Social Sciences and Sciences.
