The Government Graduate Student Organization (GGSO) was organized to support the Government Department faculty and government graduate students. We are a great group of graduate students that meet twice monthly with the support of a devoted faculty member as an adviser. Last semester we held several social events, a new-student orientation, and also helped to find funding for several students traveling to present at conferences. This semester we will host more new-student orientations and social events for government faculty, staff, and government graduate students. The relationships built between participants of the organization are memorable and irreplaceable.

The Graduate School Council provides funding, on a case-by-case basis, to support xtudent participation in academic conferences. check out the GSC website
