Providing a Voice for Graduate Students

Newly appointed Chief Diversity Officer Carmen Phelps presents details of NAU's ongoing long-term diversity plan to GSG.

The GSG held its first graduate student body elections in April 2011. This exciting event marked the transition from a campus organization to a Student Government recognized and supported by the Northern Arizona University administration.

This student-led government provides interested graduate students an opportunity to join a governing body that represents the needs of all graduate students at NAU.


In our commitment to enhancing your graduate experience, we have:

  • a substantial travel award program for graduate students to present and attend professional conference, both domestically and internationally;
  • collaborates with the Arizona Students’ Association on state and national issues;
  • organizes question-and-answer sessions with the Northern Arizona University administration;
  • increases graduate student representation on a variety of university-wide committees and groups
