The Council of Graduate Students is a proactive organization with a longstanding history of impactful legislation and advocacy efforts. We strive to make sure graduate students have the capability to keep themselves up to date on what is happening in the organization both currently, and in the past. This section contains meeting minutes, reports, and legislation drafted, reviewed, and passed by the Council, the Executive Board, and your delegates and respective representatives from the previous decade.
