Graduate Student Council

The Graduate Student Council of Texas Woman’s University is the advocating and community-building organization for graduate students of TWU. GSC operates with a senate and an executive council along with its two advisors, the Dean of the Graduate School and the Director of the Center for Student Development. Its purpose is to serve as a voice for all graduate students and to work in support of the core values of the council, while giving graduate students a formal collective presence at TWU.
