The Mathematics Graduate Student Council is a student organization that works, in conjunction with the Mathematics Graduate Committee, to deal with issues of graduate students in the Mathematics Department. We are responsible for electing members to represent the department on GPSS, choosing a winner of the Vinograde Award for Teaching and Research, and acting as a liaison between the mathematics graduate students and the Mathematics Graduate Committee.
