Graduate Representatives Council

The Graduate Representatives Council (GRC) brings a unified voice to graduate students and provides support for graduate student issues and concerns in collaboration with the Office of Graduate Studies and Research (OGSR). In addition, the Dean of OGSR, Dr. Charles De Leone, may seek advice from the GRC regarding graduate student issues that would benefit from the council’s feedback to provide student-driven solutions to improve the graduate student experience at CSUSM.

Each College has representatives who updates the executive board on current news and community interest.
