Graduate Student Advisory Council members 2018

The Graduate Student Advisory Council (GSAC) provides a graduate student perspective on topics related to the graduate student experience. The GSAC serves as a focus group for the Graduate School, student affairs and other administrative units at Oregon State University.

As graduate student leaders, members represent their affiliated colleges, programs, and student organizations. They are frequently called upon to participate in a variety of university initiatives where graduate student voices are needed.

If your unit on campus can benefit from input from GSAC members, please reach out to Karen Hanson to schedule a meeting.
