Graduate Student Board

The Graduate Student Board (GSB) is made up of students who are committed to being leaders and advocates for their graduate student peers at USM. The Board's work is guided by three main pillars:

Advocacy: Serve as a voice for graduate students to express their needs, concerns, and ideas to leadership, faculty, and staff, in order to take action to address them. 
Community: Ensure that graduate students are well-informed about their rights and resources, and stay meaningfully connected to each other and the broader USM community. 
Engagement: Provide opportunities to connect, collaborate, and network with alumni, employers, and System-wide partners to pursue career development and civic engagement.


Please feel free to contact the Board at gradstudentboard@maine.edu regarding any questions, ideas or initiatives you have for the Graduate Student Board. If you are interested in joining the Graduate Student Board, please fill out this form.
