The Psychology Graduate Student Committee exists to bring together a select group of graduate students, representing the various programs in our department, to discuss issues pertinent to graduate student life in hopes that we can have a more collaborative impact on the functioning of our department. We meet regularly to discuss issues among ourselves and with guest speakers, to set short- and long-term goals, and to evaluate our efforts toward these goals. By working together, we are able to sustain a sense of collaboration and community among the Psychology graduate students at UGA.

The committee is made up of representatives from all three graduate programs in the Department of Psychology as well as the Neuroscience PhD program through the Biomedical Health Sciences Institute. Current graduate students are encouraged to contact committee members with any questions or comments related to graduate student life in the department.
