About Us

The Harvard Graduate Council (HGC), previously known as the Harvard Graduate Student Government (HGSG), is a student government representing all twelve of Harvard University's graduate and professional schools. HGC is responsible for advocating on behalf of graduate students before the school's central administrators, including the President of Harvard University and the Provost's Office. We are governed by our Constitution and Bylaws, ratified at a regular meeting of the Harvard Graduate Council on April 3, 2017.
