National Association of Graduate-Professional Students

The MIT Graduate Student Council is a member and acitive participant in NAGPS.  NAGPS is an umbrella group for over two million graduate and professional students currently studying in the United States. NAGPS acts as a clearinghouse for graduate and professional student organizations, serves as an advocacy group for graduate-professional student needs and rights at all levels, and addresses a broad range of issues via our national committees such as international student concerns, human diversity concerns, legislative concerns, and employment concerns.

Every fall, NAGPS hosts a national conference, and every spring, NAGPS member schools meet at regional conferences.

All MIT graduate students are eligible for discounts, special access resources, and participation within NAGPS.  More information can be found at
