Art History Graduate Student Organization (AHGSO)

The Art History Graduate Student Organization (AHGSO) is an autonomous group established to further the interests of the students within the program. It functions in cooperation with the University-wide Graduate Student Association. Among other things, the AHGSO elects a student representative who attends all Graduate Art History Faculty Meetings (except those involving the evaluation and discussion of individual students of personal matters) and who votes on all issues except those concerning faculty appointments and academic decisions affecting individual students.

The AHGSO also conducts an annual symposium at which graduate students are invited to deliver papers embodying their original research in the field. Students are encouraged to participate in the association's various standing committees which are concerned with all aspects of the students' social and academic life within the program.
