The National Association of Graduate-Professional Students (NAGPS) is a national organization representing the interests of graduate students across the country. NAGPS has a threefold mission for the graduate and professional student community in the United States of America: (1) develop and sustain a member network to connect graduate and professional students and their associations, (2) provide resources and support to empower members, and (3) advocate at local and national levels on their behalf.

The Syracuse University GSO is an active member of NAGPS participating in many NAGPS events surrounding best practices in graduate student leadership as well as advocacy efforts. NAGPS also provides various benefits for graduate students, most notably health insurance (available up to 18 months after graduation). These benefits can be found at
