The Graduate Professional Council (GPC) is the official student government for all graduate, professional, and post-baccalaureate students at MU. GPC elects its leadership through their General Assembly each spring. Find out how to get involved here.


The Legion of Black Collegians (LBC) is the black student government on MU’s campus. Each spring they elect new positions after the candidates are nominated and complete an application. For more information about LBC and their election, visit their website.


Occasionally, MSA and/or GPC holds special referendums on constitutional updates or student fees during the MSA elections.


All MSA/GPC elections and referendums are governed by the Board of Election Commissioners (BEC). Public rulings by the BEC and MSA Student Court can be found on their MU Engage page. All forms and governing documents can be found on MU Engage as well. Voting simply requires a pawprint and password.
