The Cabinet is a part of the GPSG Executive Branch that enables exceptionally motivated graduate and professional students to serve as chairs or co-chairs of particular areas of campus and community life that require our participation in policy-making and programming. The Cabinet, alongside The Executive Board, design, implement, and engage new initiatives in collaboration with the graduate and professional student community. All students and members of the public are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Along with serving in their individual roles on Cabinet, our members also sit on University and community appointments that are closely related to their position. It’s through these appointments that we are able to engage with members at-large to make recommendations that will benefit graduate and professional students.
