Graduate Student Council

Who we are

Baylor Graduate Student Council (or GSC) is a graduate student organization. We are composed of a student representative from each graduate school department, one M.D./Ph.D., who is currently in graduate school, a president and vice president. Each representative is elected by their own program, and their term is renewed at the beginning of the calendar year.

What we do

GSC is the medium between the students and the graduate school administration. We organize FYI groups, help with orientation, social activities, charity events including the annual Art Show, volunteering, and the members also serve on other Baylor and TMC committees. We are the students' voice. To find out who your program representation is and what committees they are on, visit GSC members

Support GSC with our fund raising effort:
