The Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences Graduate Student Organization (A&S-GSO) is an official university student organization that advocates the interests and concerns of the graduate students of the Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences at University of Pittsburgh. A&S GSO provides the primary avenue of communications between graduate students and the administration as well as other university entities. The A&S-GSO is also responsible for dispersing 50% of the student activity fees that A&S graduate students pay each semester.
We sponsor social events such as the trivia nights and the Grad Expo. We also provide travel grants, summer research grants, and teaching awards for graduate students.
Any Arts & Sciences graduate student is welcome to attend and participate in any of the monthly meetings of the A&S-GSO. However, only official representatives of academic departments may cast a vote at the meetings.
The A&S-GSO also elects its own officers and representatives to various other university organizations. These elections take place in the Spring term and are open to any A&S graduate student. For more information, contact your department representative(s) or the GSO officers.
