Welcome to Graduate Student Senate

2013_GRS_Stabile_5The Graduate Student Senate represents Ohio University graduate students and their interests - we closely examine issues that affect the graduate student community, and pass along commission reports and recommendations to The Office of the President. Graduate Student Senate representatives also vote on the Budget Planning Council, Graduate Council, Standing University Committees, and our college senators inform their college deans of graduate student issues and collaborate to find solutions - the college deans consider these issues and solutions when submitting their proposals to the Budget Planning Council. 

Because the Graduate Student Senate plays an active role in shaping university policy, getting involved with the Graduate Student Senate is a great way to better the Ohio University graduate student experience, connect with graduate students from other departments and colleges, and become a student leader. If you are interested in getting involved at Ohio University, we welcome you to check out our Join Us page, and hope you will consider joining the Graduate Student Senate.
