The Graduate Student Advisory Council (GSAC) at Eastern Illinois University is the representative body of the graduate student population and presents graduate views on issues in a unified manner to the student government, administration, faculty, and staff. GSAC is also involved in discussing, reviewing, and participating in any university decision that has a potential impact on the graduate population. It facilitates fluid communication and continuous dialogue among graduate students, administration, faculty, and staff of EIU.

GSAC aims to promote greater interaction among the graduate student population and increase involvement and participation among all graduate departments on relevant issues.

GSAC has graduate student representatives on all university committees, councils, and other functioning bodies concerned with the development and implementation of policies and procedures relevant to the graduate population.
