Graduate Student Services and Activities

Graduate Student Life
Graduate students and undergraduate students share many of the same concerns about access to quality education, career development resources and entertainment and extracurricular opportunities. At the graduate level, however, students often have a greater need for certain kinds of resources to help them in research and professional development. Graduate students may require more time and funds to pursue research projects and travel to research and professional conferences.

About the Broward Graduate Council
The Broward Graduate Council works to provide greater communication and resources for graduate students at FAU’s Broward campuses. The BGC consists of graduate and professional students with the objective of enhancing and enriching the academic experience of FAU’s graduate students. The BGC’s mission is to advocate the interests of Broward graduate students, host cultural, academic and networking events for graduate students, and work together with other organizations to strengthen the FAU graduate student community.
