Graduate Student Association
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) provides students with a base for social interaction, professional friendships, and contacts.
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is dedicated to advancing the goals, objectives, and interests of graduate students. The GSA serves as a liaison between graduate students and the College community, providing students with a base for social interaction, professional friendships, and contacts. All enrolled and matriculated graduate students are members of the GSA and are invited to attend events and meetings.
Professional Development Grants / Mini Grants
The Graduate Student Association administers the Professional Development Grants, allowing graduate students the opportunity to apply for up to $600 ($800 in special circumstances) funding to attend professional development fields in their various fields of study. The GSA also offers Mini Grants, which provides up to $150 in funding to graduate students for professional development.
Graduate Student Organizations
The GSA also sponsors several graduate student organizations on campus. Many of these organizations have professional and social events within their individual programs, such as CSD Connections, Graduate Students for Publishing, and TEGA. Other organizations, such as the International Graduate Student Organization, provide events for students across disciplines. Only graduate student organizations that are recognized by the GSA and the Office of Graduate Studies can apply for funding, and these organizations are expected to be in attendance at the monthly GSA Council meetings.
