What is PEGO?

PEGO is a not-for-profit, student-run entity, funded by the activity fees graduate students pay at the beginning of each semester.
PEGO is a sub-organization of the Graduate Student Organization (GSO), which dictates acceptable use of funds through the GSO Constitution.
All graduate students enrolled in the Graduate School of Education are automatically members of the PEGO and the GSO, and therefore are entitled to their services.

What does PEGO do?
In seeking to serve its members in a variety of ways, PEGO:

  • Coordinates social events to provide opportunities to interact with graduate students
  • Hosts professional development workshops ranging on a variety of topics
  • Arranges guest speakers on topics of interest and holds resumé workshops
  • Contributing to the mission of the Graduate School of Education by volunteering for various projects such as: revamping the student computer pods; establishing a curriculum library; renovating the KDP and PEGO office, and coordinating on other various projects of interest
  • Provides funding for graduate students to attend professional workshops, conferences, or to purchase research materials.
