They include the best and brightest students of our school, the current and future leaders in the field.

Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG)

GPSG is the official University-wide umbrella organization for graduate and professional students at Pitt. It represents both the academic and non-academic interests and provides student-initiated and student-controlled services. The group does not supplant graduate student organizations in departments or schools, but rather coordinates joint efforts, promoting communications among the schools and providing a unified voice for graduate students within the University community.

In recent years, GPSG has offered a number of services including Carnegie Museum passes, travel funding, and free legal appointments. The activities fee assessed on all graduate students goes to GPSG. Approximately three-fourths of fees collected from each school is allocated back to that school’s individual student government to help carry out its own activities.
