The National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS) is the umbrella group for over two million graduate and professional students currently studying in the United States. NAGPS acts as a clearinghouse for graduate and professional student organizations, serves as an advocacy group for graduate-professional student needs and rights at all levels, addresses a broad range of issues via national committees (international student concerns, human diversity concerns, legislative concerns, and employment concerns), and much more!

The Director of Advocacy leads Duke University’s involvement with the NAGPS by attending NAGPS events, such as the National Conference, Legislative Action Days, and Leadership Summits.  All graduate and professional students are welcome to get involved- please contact the Director of Advocacy for more information.
