GAC | Council of Graduate Students
The Graduate Advocacy Conference (GAC) is the successor conference to the annual “Graduate Academic Conference” that has been held by the Council of Graduate Students annually. The purpose of the GAC is to empower graduate and professional students to improve their communities and to advance professionally. This shall be accomplished by focusing primarily on the research and activism of graduate and professional students and the resources and experiences of former graduate and professional students. This conference should serve as a wellspring for interdisciplinary networking, expanding the scope of the academy beyond discipline specific research and connecting graduate students with each other, community members, university resources, private businesses and non-profits, and other stakeholders in graduate and professional education.
