Graduate Student Organization

The Graduate Student Organization (GSO) is committed to representing and supporting the interests of all current and prospective graduate students at Georgia Southern University. The GSO seeks to support scholarly activities and professional development as well as promote social opportunities for all graduate students.

The GSO council consists of representatives from each of the colleges on campus. The members are elected by application and nomination process. The council is the main governing body of the GSO and their duties include, but are not limited to, making final decisions regarding grant applications, running GSO meetings, and helping to organize social and professional development events sponsored by the GSO for graduate students. The GSO accepts grant proposals for research and conference travel to the Graduate Student Professional Development Fund each semester.
