The Graduate Student Government is a council of all the Graduate Student Associations (GSAs) at the University of Denver.
The GSG has two goals at the University:
- One is to foster a sense of community among the graduate students.
- The other to represent that community and its interests at DU.
GSG is the DU graduate community's representative student government body. As YOUR representative, we are here to serve YOU and advocate for YOUR interests and concerns. For more information on how we are striving to do so, please click on any of the links listed here.

Graduate student survey
The Graduate Student Government is conducting its bi-annual survey to develop a stronger understanding of the academic and personal experiences of the graduate student population at the University of Denver. The questions cover areas such as academics, support groups and services and community. The data collected will be shared with the university's senior administration and each graduate student association. The survey will take 7-8 minutes to complete.
Statement of Inclusiveness
The Graduate Student Government (GSG) affirms the University of Denver's commitment to Inclusive Excellence. Moreover, the GSG believes that diversity and inclusion are essential to the fulfillment of our organizational mission.
Inclusive Excellence is embedded and valued in our learning, programming, student involvement, and funding processes. Our commitment to promoting and maintaining a respectful campus community facilitates opportunities for shared understanding among DU graduate students, across academic disciplines, areas of research, and practical expertise.
As such, the GSG resolves to make meaningful contributions to our campus community in ways that both facilitate and promote respect and support for all persons across similarities and differences in background, including but not limited to: race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, religion, nationality, age and disability.
Our meetings are open to all graduate students at the University of Denver. For the winter 2013 quarter, meetings will be held in room 105 of Katherine A. Ruffato (Morgridge College of Education) on the following dates from noon-1:30 p.m.:
