Our Mission Statement Heading link

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) is the governing Graduate Student Body consisting of representatives from all degree-granting programs in the Graduate College.
Addressing the specific needs of graduate students, GSC organizes academic seminars and workshops, supports students with travel and project awards, unites them with meaningful social and cultural events, and represents the UIC graduate student body in the many different organizations and events.

Welcome Heading link

We are thrilled to welcome you to the 2022/2023 year of service in the UIC Graduate Student Council.  The council will gather in person on October 5th, for the first time since the pandemic.  We are maintaining a room capacity and will proceed with meeting invitations in a phased approach.  The first group that will receive an invitation includes officers, executive committee members, and primary representatives.  This group will have 48 hours to rsvp and the invitation will then be opened to alternative representatives.  Once capacity is met, respondents will be waitlisted.

The meeting will begin on Wednesday, October 5th at 4:45 pm with check-in, business promptly at 5 pm, and conclude at 7 pm with an executive committee member meeting following at 7:15 pm.  Invitations, RSVPs, and meeting check-in will run exclusively through UIC Connection.  There will be no option to attend the meeting without pre-registration on UIC Connection.

Group 1 invitations will be sent on Monday, September 12th, and group 2 invitations will be sent on Wednesday, September 14th.  Registration will close at 9 am on Monday, September 26th.
