The Philosophy Graduate Student Organization is an officially-recognized group under the policies of Mizzou’s Organization Resource Group (ORG).  This allows the Philosophy Graduate Student Organization to request funds from ORG for purposes that include (i) conference travel, (ii) visiting speakers, (iii) social and educational events, and (iv) outreach.  Elections for the officer positions are held at the beginning of each fall semester.

The Philosophy Graduate Student Organization also coordinates various departmental functions performed by graduate students and by faculty. Functions include those related to admissions, orientations, student resources, presentations, and outside speakers. Meetings are held on payday each month, and all graduate students are encouraged to attend.
