    • Bringing students together from diverse programs and backgrounds for networking, discussion, and collaboration
    • Building relationships with university faculty and administration
    • Representing graduate students on university committees and student government organizations
    • Organizing and supporting events and initiatives of interest to the broader graduate student population
