Graduate life for Public Policy students goes beyond the classroom and the computer lab, to professional and social activities on and off campus. We have a variety of resources to help our students stay connected to each other and to the University.

The Public Policy Graduate Student Organization (PPGSO) organizes social and professional development activities to support Public Policy students and complement their educational program. New members are always welcome.

The UMBC Graduate Student Association (GSA) supports the academic, professional, social and personal needs of all of UMBC’s graduate student community. Each department is eligible to have two senators for their monthly meetings.
