Mission

The IUB GPSO (Graduate and Professional Student Organization) serves over 8000 graduate and professional students at IU-Bloomington by providing academic support, community, advocacy, and graduate resources.

Academic Support

Being a graduate or professional student can be difficult. The GPSO strives, through the various programs and services, to provide opportunities for graduate and professional students to manage their professional lives effectively and efficiently during their time in Bloomington.

Community Building

The GPSO organizes and sponsors several social, academic and professional events and works to foster a closer community between IU’s graduate and professional students. We also strive to create and maintain productive communication channels with other major constituents of the university.

Advocacy

The GPSO promotes the interests of the graduate community through the Bloomington Faculty Council and on several campus committees. The GPSO also organizes and funds several initiatives to improve the campus and Bloomington community, such as the Recycling Project.

Resources

Recognizing the need for sharing information and resources in the graduate student community, the GPSO builds resources that assists graduate and professional students with living and working at IU.
