The Graduate Professional Council is the university-wide graduate student organization that represents more than 6,000 graduate and professional students from all seven schools at Washington University in St. Louis: Architecture, Art, Arts & Sciences, Business, Engineering, Law, Medicine, and Social Work. GPC hosts events and provides social/networking opportunities for graduate students to meet other students across academic disciplines.
Washington University has a strong tradition of graduate student involvement and leadership. Through our "shared governance" system, graduate students are represented at virtually every level of the decision-making process affecting graduate students: departmental and School committees; University Standing Committees; and graduate student representation on the Washington University Board of Trustees.
There are also numerous opportunities for graduate students to get involved and develop their leadership skills through School-based student groups and multidisciplinary and university-wide registered graduate student groups listed below.
The Liberman Graduate Center provides priority space-use, administrative support, and advising to the Graduate Professional Council, Graduate Student Senate, and all registered university-wide graduate student groups. Contact: Assistant Dean Kim Curtis.
