To our graduate and professional colleagues,

Cooler fall weather is now reaching us in Colorado! Please see below for a weekly update from the Graduate and Professional Student Government, which you should also be receiving from your department representative or college senator.

Upcoming events and opportunities:

Week in Review:

  • We met with Disability Services to make suggestions for making the comprehensive and dissertation exam process more accessible. Students registered with this office are entitled to the same kinds of accommodations for these exams as for courses.

  • Our summary of grad and professional university dental insurance options, available here, has been updated with new information from the grad school. 

  • We met with the graduate school last week to discuss the results of the Fees and Benefits committee report from last year. We also followed up on department culture investigations and the graduate housing changes.

  • The executives would like to thank Anthony Pinter for his many years of service to GPSG through the roles of department representative, (the inaugural) Director of Data Analytics, Vice President of External Affairs, and most recently as Speaker of the Assembly. Anthony recently stepped down to graduate this semester; we wish you best of luck with your future endeavors!

If any questions arise, you can reach out to your representative or contact us at

We hope you stay safe and have a great week,

Emily JensenBarra Peak, and Bobby Vondrasek
