Graduate Student Organization


The purpose of Graduate Student Organization (GSO) is to cultivate a graduate student presence and culture on campus. This includes representing graduate students on relevant and appropriate University advisory boards and panels as well as being a sounding board for the graduate student population’s concerns and issues.

Due to the growth of graduate programs the Graduate Student Organization is in the process of restructuring.  Research funding and professional travel reimbursements are still available, see process below.

Research Funding and Professional Travel Reimbursement
All currently enrolled graduate students are eligible to apply for reimbursement for research and professional travel.  Distribution of funds based upon need, other funding and equitable distribution across all programs.  Funds are limited; consequently, very specific proposals with modest and tightly-constructed budgets are preferred; it will be rare for any single project or individual student to receive support greater than $300 in a budget year. Reimbursement maybe granted for research, travel expenses, and registration fees for conferences / workshops. Download the two files below, fill them out and send to Dr. Randy Bergman at
