Graduate Student Assembly

The Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) has been the official representative body for graduate students since 1994. Other groups, including the Council of Graduate Students, represented graduate students between 1968 and 1994. GSA addresses issues that are important to its constituents, not only as students but also as teaching assistants, research assistants, and assistant instructors. GSA reports administratively to the vice provost and dean of graduate studies. Administrative expenses are funded through an allocation from students’ tuition.

The objectives of GSA are to represent the views of graduate students to the University community and the community at large; to facilitate graduate student communication and interaction; to gather and disseminate information pertinent to graduate students; to conduct activities that promote the general welfare of graduate students; and to provide a means of assisting in the selection of graduate student members of departmental, college, and University bodies.

More information about GSA, including contact information for officers, current representatives, meeting agendas and minutes, and current and past activities, is available at the GSA Web site, .
