Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. Many of the student organizations on campus are open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
All graduate students are automatically members of the Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC). The GPSC has monthly meetings to discuss any issues or concerns of the graduate students. GPSC representatives serve as the graduate student representatives on university administrative committees including the Graduate Council, Library Council, Student Government Association, etc. GPSC will therefore also discuss any concerns or questions from the university administration to provide them with an overall response from the graduate and professional students.
GPSC provides an opportunity to meet other graduate and professional students. Several events for professional development and socializing are planned by GPSC each year.
Duquesne University Volunteers (DUV) offers unique opportunities for graduate students interested in volunteering within the Pittsburgh region and other locations around the country and the world.
