Beginning in Fall 2018, the University of Arkansas’ Graduate-Professional Student Congress (GPSC) proudly began a new chapter. Thanks to the unyielding work of a group of graduate students over the past several years, graduate and professional students on campus achieved complete independence for their governing body. The newly established GPSC now controls the student activity fee that each student pays each semester which provides a host of benefits for their constituents including over $40,000 of funding for graduate students to use for travel and research expenses. The GPSC is also now more than ever equipped to advocate on behalf of graduate and professional students to the administration on the unique issues that impact their lives and their work.
Graduate education is the backbone of all institutions of higher education and their voice will be louder than at any time in the history of the University of Arkansas.
