- 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
