Partnership Representatives

The partnership representatives represent students in institutional or individual partnerships with the Graduate Partnership Program (GPP) to the Graduate Student Council (GSC), and relay important information from the GSC to their constituency.  In an effort to bolster graduate student participation and facilitate clear communication with Institutional and Individual Partnerships, the GSC is currently formalizing an updated representative scheme. In the meantime, if you are interested in representing your constituency, please email
