Graduate Student Senate

The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) serves as the official voice for graduate and professional students at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

The GSS is a student-run organization that serves as a liaison between graduate students and the administration. Each department may have at least one representative in the Senate. We help to ensure that policies at the university are created and maintained to best serve our graduate student population.
