Who we are

Our mission is to create a university-wide identity and culture by building a welcoming graduate community, empowering interdisciplinary collaboration, and opening lines of communication across campus. Graduate Council is made up of a leadership team and 17 elected representatives from the university's 12 graduate schools and divisions.
