How does the SEAS-GC fit in with the other councils on campus?

Differences between SEAS-GC, GSC, and HGPSG

  • SEAS-GC: THIS IS US! SEAS specific graduate student council; tries to unite all areas within SEAS and acts as the liaison between graduate students, SEAS administration, and the wider Harvard community.

  • GSAS GSC (Graduate Student Council): The graduate student council serving and representing all graduate students at Harvard (who are affiliated with GSAS), but not professional students (such as M.D., J.D., MBA, etc.). PhD students in professional schools are considered to be under GSC.

  • HGC (Harvard Graduate Council): The Harvard-wide council serving and representing all graduate and professional students in Harvard to administration.
