Who We Are 

Membership in the GSA is open to all graduate and post-baccalaureate unclassified students studying within the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Leadership is provided by the Executive Council, which consists of seven elected officers and representatives elected from each graduate department or program within the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. GSA members represent a wide spectrum of academic disciplines, including the natural and life sciences, computer sciences, social sciences, and the humanities.


GSA’s mission statement outlines five primary purposes for the organization. These include the following: (1) To advance the academic and social interests of graduate students of the college; 2) To assist in governing matters of honor violations within the graduate school; (3) To select eligible graduate students for college committees in which graduate representation is necessary; 4) To advance the recognition and integration of graduate students at the college; and 5) To provide a forum for the dissemination of information and ideas to the college and the community.


GSA is governed by a constitution, last amended on November 15, 2010. This document can be found here.
