Graduate Student Advocacy Council

The Graduate Student Advocacy Council (GSAC) is an organization of graduate students dedicated to enhancing graduate student life at Western Washington University. The GSAC meets twice each month throughout the academic year. Our meetings include an open forum during which any graduate student is welcome to speak on issues of concern. For the day and time of the next GSAC meeting, please see our Calendar of Events or subscribe to the GSAC mailing list.
