20141114Carl_Smith01_bws The Graduate Student Senate represents Ohio University graduate students and their interests. We examine issues that affect the graduate student community, and submit reports and recommendations to The Office of the President, Budget Planning Council, Graduate Council, Standing University Committees, and to several of the college deans.

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 student experience, connect with graduate students from other disciplines, and become a student leader. If you are interested in getting involved at Ohio University, I welcome you to check out our Join Us page, and hope you will consider joining the Graduate Student Senate.

Please browse through this website to find information about grants, workshops, elections, graduate student news, resolutions & minutes, health insurance and to contact your department or college representatives in the Graduate Student Senate. If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please feel free to contact me. We welcome your feedback!

All the Best,

Carl Edward Smith III
