Graduate Student Council header

We are an interdisciplinary organization of graduate students in the Liberal Arts and Sciences, working with the Graduate Studies Office, with a common interest to improve and enhance the quality of the graduate students’ experience here at Villanova. Our goal is to create opportunities for students to participate in social, academic, and community activities.

We regard representing our departments in the University as a continuing and progressive movement. We believe that the change, productivity, and community atmosphere we generate will be passed on to the next group of graduate student members.

Academic Activities

  • Represent graduate students on various university committees

Social Activities
