Graduate Student Council

All graduate students are members of the Graduate Student Council (GSC), your representative voice at NDSU. The GSC formulates policy and advises the dean of the Graduate School, the University Senate, and the president of the university on the viewpoint of graduate students in all relevant matters. The organization acts to improve the quality of your educational and social experiences as a graduate student at NDSU. Meetings and social events are held regularly.
