Welcome to the UNH Graduate Student Senate site

The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) is the official voice of UNH's graduate student body. We work hard to advocate for graduate students, representing their interests across UNH and the university system. We also work to engage the state legislature and foster a sense of community and social engagement among graduate students on campus.


**The nomination period is open to run for a 2021 - 2022 position on the Graduate Student Senate. Nominations can be submitted using this link through March 17th at 5pm. The form will ask for your name, email, position(s) you are interested in running for (up to two), and a short (few sentences) statement about why you are interested in running that will go on the ballot. Email grad.student.senate@unh.edu with any questions or issues.**

The Graduate Student Senate is committed to to promoting a safe and antiracist environment for graduate students at UNH, and we ask the members of our community to do the same. Please see our statement of support for the Black community and those who are standing up against the injustices faced by Black Americans in this country.
