Welcome to Grad Summit 2022!

Each year, UCGPC hosts an annual Graduate Summit. During Grad Summit, we take the pulse of the incoming and current graduate student body to determine priority areas and advocacy agendas for the upcoming years. We encourage UC graduate and professional students, stakeholders, and other experts to apply to present on issues they would like to see represented in UCGPC's advocacy agenda. We also invite all UC graduate and professional students to attend and provide input and feedback on our priorities. After Grad Summit, UCGPC's Council will vote on our advocacy agenda for the duration of the academic year. The Council is comprised of elected student body leaders at each UC campus.


This year, the potential topics focus on:

  1. Graduate Student Rights

  2. Financial Aid and Debt Relief

  3. Basic Needs: Housing, Food Security, and Student Safety

  4. Student Health: Reproductive, Mental, etc.

  5. Civic Engagement: Social Justice, Environmental Justice, etc.


This year, Grad Summit will be held virtually on Saturday, November 5th from 9:30am to approximately 3:00pm. We invite graduate/professional students and student affairs professionals in the UC system the opportunity to provide input on panelists' presentations.
