Message from the GPSG President:

Hi, I’m Katie! Graduate and professional students are not only students; we are researchers, teachers, and project organizers. We are daughters, sons, parents, and caregivers. I have served in advocacy roles for many years, including previously serving as a Senator for Biomedical Engineering and the GPSG Senior Vice President. These roles have given me the opportunity to learn from many Graduate and Professional students, each with a diverse background, field of study, and stage in life.

As your president, my goal is to ensure that Graduate and Professional students feel like they belong as a part of the Carolina community. I am so excited to be here to listen, collaborate, and share ideas with many of you.




Fight for comprehensive Bill of Rights, protected time off, reasonable work hours, guaranteed wellness days, comprehensive healthcare coverage.


Create dedicated spaces on campus designed for the Graduate and Professional student community, so all students feel that they have somewhere they belong within Carolina.


Increase transparency in GPSG by clearly communicating our priorities, simplifying our processes, and ensuring that all services we provide are promoted, accessible, and user-friendly.


Encourage collaboration with the Undergraduate Student Government and engage with the university’s leadership to ensure we effectively act on the needs of our community
