Graduate Student Senate (GSS) is one of the five shared governance bodies within Ohio University administration and recognized by the Board of Trustees. The purpose of GSS is to act as the official representative body of graduate students enrolled at Ohio University. GSS "is to participate in the formulation and application of both university and community policy, and with the goal of enhancing the quality of life and education of all graduate students"(
GSS Constitution, approved by Board of Trustees 4-11-03).
Because the GSS 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, we welcome you to check out our
page, and hope you will consider joining the Graduate Student Senate.

Travel Award (TA)
supports travel to present original work, including research and creative works. The Travel Award is intended to enhance graduate education through participation in seminars, workshops and conferences, fostering professional development to further students’ careers. The award attempts to cover a majority of the costs associated with such travel.
