The Graduate Materials Council acts as advocates for DMSE graduate students. Members of the GMC serve on the Graduate Student Council, the institute-wide graduate committee and three student representatives serve on the Departmental Committee on Graduate Studies, the group responsible for decisions regarding the curriculum and qualifying procedures. The group also plans many social activities for the students in the department, as well as field teams for intramural sports.

GMC is recognized by the Association of Student Acitivities (ASA) at MIT since November 2012. The most recent version of our by-laws can be found here.
