Summary of Student Resources

We at Graduate Council feel it is one of our primary responsibilities to effectively inform the graduate students at UChicago. Here you will find resources gathered by various initiatives such as the Student Perspectives Series and the Graduate Issues Committee.


graduate student unionization

Here you will find resources that will introduce you to the legal concepts involved with graduate student unionization as well as a balanced set of internal and external resources to help you navigate this issue leading up to the likely NLRB vote.


tax cuts and jobs act

Here is Graduate Council's response to H.R. 1 - Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Included are helpful resources such as how to contact your congresspeople, and explanation of how the bill may affect graduate students who take advantage of tuition waivers on campus, and other information about the legislation.


divisional election codes

Here you will find links to the Divisional Election Codes for each school and division at the university. These codes outline how Graduate Council representatives are elected. Contact us or your area Dean of Students to learn more about becoming a representative.


financial reporting

Graduate Council publishes quarterly financial reports to inform both the graduate student body and administrators such as the area Deans of Students on how we allocate our resources. On this page you will find all past quarterly reporting from the Graduate Council.
