Graduate Student Government
The Graduate Student Government (GSG) is the only campus organization sponsored, staffed and run exclusively by graduate students. If you are a graduate student, you are automatically a member of the GSG, and your Student Activity Fee goes directly to the funding of this organization. GSG is completely independent of the university administration, and reports only to the graduate student body. GSG advocates for graduate students on and off campus, bringing our concerns to University officials, USM officials, the Board of Regents, and lawmakers.
