Graduate Student Association

Our mission is to provide graduate leadership, functioning as a community of scholars in which teaching, research, and service are instrumental keys in strengthening and guiding our futures. The Graduate Student Association maintains a commitment to provide the means for a responsible and effective graduate student enrichment experience.

While the Graduate Student Association utilizes the University's historical, cultural, human and physical resources to enhance professionalism, the GSA serves as a liaison between culturally and academically diverse graduate students and exists as a pillar of support for the graduate student environment.
