Graduate Student Senate

The Graduate Student Senate is the duly constituted collegiate association of the Graduate College and is the primary representative, administrative, and service organization for the graduate students at the University of Iowa. It serves as the voice of the graduate student population to the university administration, faculty, and to all other organizations at the University, and within the Iowa City community.

Since being organized in 1968, GSS has represented the voice of graduate students throughout the University of Iowa campus and has impacted graduate life through service, social and most importantly research activities, such as the University-wide Jakobsen Graduate Conference.

Furthermore, it assists in the administration of resources designated to graduate students, and works to establish and maintain programs and activities of interests to graduate students. For more detailed information, please consult the GSS Handbook.
