Graduate Student Government

The Voice of the Graduate Student Body

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.
