Graduate Student Senate

Welcome to the Graduate Student Senate at The University of Iowa!

The Graduate Student Senate is comprised of grad students, for grad students. We exist to give graduate students a voice in the dialog bteween students and the University, and to inform graduate students of opportunities for professional development, outreach, and social events. Our primary goals are to successfully run the Jakobsen Conference and opportunities for GSS Funding for graduate students. This website is designed to keep The University of Iowa community up to date with our activities, events, meetings, and membership.
