The Graduate Student Senate can officially endorse organizations in order to provide resources on campus. The GSS can reserve space on campus and assist in publicizing the group. The basic requirements for recognition are at least 75% grad student membership and the submission of a mission statement or constitution at a Senate meeting.

Career Mobility Committee (CMC)

The purpose of the CMC is to provide graduate students and postdoctoral trainees/fellows with advice and skill-building resources that will help them gain access to non-academic STEM-field careers while providing information about what opportunities lie outside of academia. While the focus of the group is STEM, these skills/advice are transferrable and applicable to other fields. Our events consist mainly of monthly seminars during the academic year and an annual STEM workshop. Please feel free to contact us with speaker requests or workshop ideas at mobility@uvm.edu or visit the CMC website for more information.
