About the MSE GSC

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) is a student organization with the purpose of bettering the life of the MSE graduate student body. We aim to advocate for MSE graduate students and make sure they feel like they are a part of a community here at Michigan. We do this by focusing on four core areas of the graduate experience: advocacy, social events, career and professional development, and curriculum.


Here are your representatives:

  • President: Ben Derby
  • Past President: Ashley Hilmas
  • Secretary: Duncan Greeley
  • Treasurer: Sid Borsadia
  • 5th Year Representative: Maya Nath
  • 4th Year Representative: Benjamin Swerdlow
  • 3rd Year Representative: Keara Saud
  • 2nd Year Representative: Aaron Gladstein
  • Masters Representative: Lamia Dawahre

Here is a calendar of our events!



Whether you just come to our events or want to take on a leadership role, we want all students to get involved in the GSC. Hope to see you around soon!
