Welcome to the University of Kentucky Graduate Student Congress

Our mission is to unify and represent the graduate student body at the University of Kentucky in matters affecting the quality of graduate student life and work and to facilitate interdisciplinary collaboration and promote professional development for graduate students through seminars, forums, and social functions.

  • Statement of Autonomy
    Under advisement from the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students and the representatives of the Graduate Student Congress, the Graduate Student Congress at the University of Kentucky is committed to ensuring a more equitable system of governance and is therefore issuing this Statement of Autonomy. We propose a separate autonomous organization with the following: 1) financial and legislative independence by gathering fees and decision-making power that has heretofore went to the Student Government Association (SGA) and Student Activity Board (SAB) and 2) representative authority within the University equal to that held by the SGA.

    Big Blue Family Care (BBFC) is a network of current UK students, who offer occasional caregiving (i.e. child care, pet care) to families of UK faculty and staff. Check this out for more information
