The Graduate Student Government at the University of Maine

Welcome to the Graduate Student Government Homepage!

Greetings from the President:

The Graduate Student Government (GSG) exists to promote the interests of all graduate students at the University of Maine and is committed to fostering a culture of diversity and inclusivity within our graduate student body. As a point of contact between graduate students and the academic administration, Board of Trustees, and community partners, the GSG works directly on policies and services that affect graduate students. The GSG organizes professional development workshops, votes on our healthcare plan, supports graduate student research in the form of competitive grants, hosts socials, and performs many other services throughout the year.

My vision for the GSG is to create a fulfilling and worthwhile experience for all graduate students at our university. If you would like to learn more about the GSG or voice any thoughts and concerns about your graduate school experience, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at

If you are new grad student, take a look at our insider’s guide.
