About the Council of Graduate Students
CGS is the branch of student government that represents graduate students at the main and branch campuses. It is our main purpose to improve the graduate student experience at The Ohio State University. Officers and Delegates are from every department at OSU and serve as advocates during university policy-making decisions. Our competitive funding programs and "graduate-only" social events support the development of all graduate students. Further information can be found at the Council of Graduate Students website.

History of The Versatile Ph.D.
Founded by Paula Chambers, a Ph.D. alum in English from Ohio State, The Versatile Ph.D. is a web-based resource that provides a confidential community for graduate students to network and to explore resources relevant to this type of career exploration. The key concept is versatility: the ability to apply skills and interests in a wide variety of careers, so that Ph.Ds. have options both in and out of academe.
