Graduate Students of the Four Faculties (GSFF)

  • Description

    • Graduate Students of the Four Faculties (GSFF) is a graduate student run organization at the University of Denver. Overall, GSFF has two main goals. The first goal of this organization is to help graduate students, in the departments of Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences and Math, and Engineering and Computer Science, fund their conference endeavors. The funding that is partially reimbursed to graduate students each quarter helps to ease the financial expenses that most conferences create due to the combined costs of airfare, hotel, and numerous conference fees. GSFF is here to help ease that financial burden as much as we can. The second goal of GSFF is to discuss and/or address any issues that may arise pertaining to graduate students’ needs at DU. In addition to discussing and addressing these issues, a member of the GSFF Executive Council attends all GSG (Graduate Student Government; meetings to voice any concerns and/or issues that GSFF (including the graduate students represented by GSFF) has and wants to express. If you have any questions or need further information, please feel free to contact one of the GSFF officers or your departmental representative.
