Graduate Student Association

The College of Arts and Sciences Graduate Student Association (GSA) is designed to provide useful training opportunities and professional development resources, as well as a space to voice concerns that students perceive hinder graduate education progression.

It is open to all graduate students in the College, so all students are automatically members of the association—no fees are associated with membership. 

Join GSA!
