GSS is comprised of graduate students, for graduate students.

The Graduate Student Senate is the primary representative, administrative, and service organization for graduate students at the University of Iowa and the senators of GSS are the core of the graduate student voice on campus. The Graduate Student Senate also functions as a conduit for information between the Graduate College and the general graduate student population.

Involvement in GSS is a great way to connect with students across campus, connect with leaders in the Graduate College, and make your voices heard. Senators attend monthly general assembly meetings and work with committees to host events for graduate students. Want to get involved? Email us at grad-senate@uiowa.edu
