Graduate Student Groups Information

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.
