Graduate Student Senate

The GSS's mission is to represent and advocate for the interests of graduate students.

The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) represents graduate students in programs granting Ph.D. degrees at Washington University in St. Louis. Senators are drawn from programs and departments across Arts and Sciences, the McKelvey School of Engineering, the Brown School, the Olin Business School, and the School of Medicine. The GSS provides forums for graduate student concerns, fosters connections between graduate students, and facilitates communication with the Vice Provost for Graduate Education.
