The mission of the Doctoral Students' Council (DSC) is to foster a sense of community among graduate students; reflect and encourage the expression of their diversity; develop reciprocal channels of communication among graduate students, undergraduates, faculty, staff, and the administration of the Graduate Center; generate a space of discussion on Graduate Center issues; project the students’ voice in Graduate Center affairs; and provide students with valuable resources for advancing their professional careers and enjoying their personal time. The DSC is especially proud of and shares CUNY’s historic mission of providing access to higher education to low-income communities and communities of color in New York City and the nation.
