The Graduate Student Council (GSC) is the link between graduate students, ASNMSU, and the Graduate College.  All graduate students are invited to participate in the GSC.

Goals of the Graduate Student Council:

- to facilitate communication between graduate students of various backgrounds
- to direct student activity fee monies to Graduate Student Organizations and individuals
- to promote student research through the Graduate Research and Arts Symposium (held every Spring Semester)
- to encourage graduate student involvement in the university and greater Las Cruces communities

Current Items:
- The next GSC meeting of the 2013-2014 academic year will take place in the Senate Gallery (RM 304) on April 22nd from 4:00-4:30.
