Dexter Golinghorst


Hi, I'm Dexter. I'm honored to serve as the GPSG President for 2018–2019. I grew up on a farm near Maysville in Eastern Iowa. I completed my undergraduate degree in political science and economics at the University of Iowa. As an undergrad, I served as a UISG senator and Governmental Affairs Liaison. As a 1L, I was a College of Law GPSG delegate. During my second year at the College of Law, I served as the President of Iowa Student Bar Association before becoming GPSG president this year. During my tenure, I have several goals I'd like to accomplish. I want to increase GPSG's presence both on campus and in conversations affecting university-wide initiatives. I also want to increase funding opportunities and partnerships for research, and mentorship. I would also like to build lasting relationships with our elected officials to promote the value of the work graduate and professional students contribute to Iowa and the world.
