Graduate Student Senate
Welcome to the website of the University of New Hampshire’s Graduate Student Senate! The Graduate Student Senate is the official voice of UNH's graduate student body. We advocate for graduate students and we are looking forward to working with you.
All degree-seeking graduate students are members of the GSS and are eligible to participate in all meetings and events.
The GSS meets every other Tuesday from 12:30 - 2:00 PM in the Memorial Union Building on the UNH campus in Durham.
The GSS is CURRENTLY SEEKING a graduate student to serve as Senator to represent the Forest Park housing units. Email email@example.com if you're interested in helping to represent one of these areas of the graduate student community.
What your Senate is doing for you...
Many of the important decisions that affect graduate students at UNH are made in administrative committees. The GSS represents graduate students on a multitude of these committees including the Central Budget Committee, the Faculty Senate, the Graduate Council, the President's Commissions on Inclusive Excellence, and many more. Any graduate student can serve as a liaison to a UNH committees and we are currently seeking representatives for several committee assignments. Serving on a committee is just one way that you can help your fellow grad students and gain service experience. Please visit our service opportunities page or contact us to find out more about how you can help.
Support for higher education has become embroiled in political battles in the past few years. As the November election cycle approaches, the GSS is launching an initiative to inform our constituents of local, state, and federal candidates' stances on issues pertinent to higher education. Information on New Hampshire's new Voter ID Law, proposed bills relevant to higher education, and candidate's platforms can be found on our Voter Education page.
