Current Opportunities with ECGPS
There are a variety of ways to get involved in ECGPS. ECGPS consists of an executive board and a council. To be on the council, one must contact their member government within their specific college and find out what the process is to be a delegate to ECGPS. Each member government has a different way of selecting ECGPS delegates. The council is comprised of 12 delegates, which is two delegates per member government. To be on the executive board one must nominated themselves and participate in the spring elections. A mass email is sent out each spring with a call for nominations. In addition, one can get involved without formally joining ECGPS. Throughout the year there are various volunteer opportunities, events, lectures, etc that individuals can help organize and attend.

After forming a partnership student government with the University of Iowa Student Government (UISG), the undergraduate student government, ECGPS became a completely autonomous governing body in early 2009. In March, 2009, ECGPS subsequently received the authority to allocate graduate and professional student funds from the Student Activity Fee, an account that all students contribute to each year to enrich life here on campus.
