The purpose of the Graduate Student Senate is to cultivate both the academic and nonacademic activities of the graduate student body and enhance all aspects of graduate school life at the University of Vermont. We are a voice for graduate students and act as a liaison between the University of Vermont’s administration, faculty, staff, undergraduate and graduate students.
