Graduate Student Organization

The Graduate Student Organization (GSO) is the official graduate student governing body. The GSO promotes the welfare of graduate students by addressing the advocacy, professional, and social needs of students.

  • The GSO serves as a formal liaison between graduate students and the administration.
  • The GSO promotes educational and professional achievement by providing competitive travel scholarships and organizing the annual GSO Poster Session.
  • The GSO facilitates interaction among graduate students by sponsoring social activities and organizing volunteer service opportunities.

All graduate students enrolled in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Southwestern are members of the GSO.
