2023-24 Representatives

Need to reach your COGS representative?  You can check with your department or email the COGS Office: office@cogs.msu.edu (specify your department).

If your academic department is not currently represented in COGS, you may inquire with your department about serving in that capacity of interested.   Please note, COGS does not choose representatives for academic departments – those are chosen by the individual departments.  We can help facilitate that, however, so please feel free to contact us via email at office@cogs.msu.edu. You are welcome to use/share this pdf COGS Rep Flyer if you like. (Must be a currently enrolled graduate or professional student at MSU to participate.)

If your  Graduate Student Organization does not have a seat on the Full Council and is seeking to be represented, click the button below to complete the COGS GSO Representation Application.

*Note: website is updated throughout the year as representation changes become available.  During transition periods when changes occur frequently, information might not be reflected on the website.  Please feel free to contact the office if you have a question or need up to date information on representation for a particular group.
