Welcome to the GSG's OrgSync!
Please have a look around and if you have any comments, send them our way (email@example.com).
Graduate Student Government (GSG) is the official representative body for graduate students at the University of Maryland, College Park. It is comprised of the executive (Executive Committee) and legislative (Assembly) branches. We meet monthly at our General Assembly Meetings, which are open to all graduate students. GSG is funded by the Graduate Student Activities Fee.
The mission of GSG is to advocate on behalf of graduate students at the University of Maryland and in our state. GSG represents the interests of graduate students and graduate employees at the university-level, system-level, and state-level. We are committed to using our resources to provide, support, and encourage graduate student programming that serves the varied interests of our constituents. We are committed to the practice of shared governance, and vow to hold university administration, the campus community, and ourselves accountable in the ongoing struggle to fulfill that promise. We are committed to fighting injustice and working to transform the structures, policies, and cultures that enable systems of oppression at this university and in our communities.
An organization’s mission statement should provide a description of the group’s purpose.

Every fee-paying graduate student at the University of Maryland is a member of Graduate Student Government. A smaller number of students, called Program Representatives, convene monthly as an Assembly to discuss issues which require collective action. Anyone can attend these open meetings, but only the Representatives can vote on the resolutions and amendments presented. We follow parliamentary procedure in the Assembly to ensure democratic and reasonably efficient operations.
If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a departmental representative, please contact the Vice President for Legislative Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please list the email address where general inquiries to the organization should be directed.
