Graduate students who are interested in governance organizations have an opportunity to be active at the College and University levels.

The University-wide Council of Graduate Students (COGS) is the Recognized Student Governance Association (RSGA) at University of Minnesota that represents, advocates for, informs, facilitates communications among, and supports Twin cities graduate students (students who are seeking a research degree: a Ph.D. or a Masters that is associated with a Ph.D. program).
