NAGPS empowers graduate-professional students to advocate at the federal level. Guided by the NAGPS Advocacy Platform and Legislative Platform, members can help fellow graduate-professional students' voices and concerns be heard on the national stage.
NAGPS committees meet regularly and are chaired by committed and trained national Directors.
As a member, you may request to join an NAGPS committee to work closely with a team of passionate graduate-professional students. Through committee participation, as a member you will feel more connected to NAGPS and its mission, and you will have the opportunity to develop essential skills by executing projects and initiatives.
Working collaboratively at the regional or national level, in an NAGPS director position, members can gain valuable skills to use well beyond their graduate-professional student years. Making connections and an impact beyond your university, leadership roles within NAGPS are a great resume or CV builder and help set you apart in a competitive job market.
