The Penn Museum Graduate Advisory Council (GAC) is a representative council dedicated to facilitating engagement among graduate students and promoting their involvement both as collaborative stakeholders within and as advisers to the Penn Museum.
GAC organizes a weekly writing group, professional and academic development workshops, and social events, including trips to other Philadelphia institutions. GAC meets once a month, and any interested graduate student enrolled at the University of Pennsylvania may become a member of the Penn Museum Graduate Advisory Council.
