The Mission of the Graduate and Professional Student Government

Graduate and Professional Student Government is the governing body of the graduate and professional students of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. GPSG empowers its constituents to exercise their agency over University and personal affairs. Our mission is to (1) provide graduate and professional students with the support and resources they need to succeed academically; (2) advocate with and for students to ensure current educational, occupational, and social conditions are conducive to achieving their professional and personal goals; and (3) represent their interests before the University, the Board of Trustees, other governing bodies of the University System, and Local, State, and Federal Governments.
