The Graduate Student Government is the only campus organization sponsored, staffed and run exclusively by graduate students. If you are a graduate student, you are automatically a member of the GSG, and your Student Activity Fee goes directly to the funding of this organization. We are completely independent of the university administration, and we report only to the graduate student body. We advocate for graduate students on and off campus, bringing our concerns to University officials, USM officials, the Board of Regents, and lawmakers.
We support all students at the University of Maryland.

We do not do this work alone and through our values of collaboration, personal commitment, authenticity, and inclusion, we serve our campus in its goals to achieve equity and social justice.
