Graduate Student Association
What is the GSA?
The Graduate Student Association provides professional development and social networking opportunities for graduate students in Arts and Humanities.
Where are we?
Most of our meetings take place in the Graduate Student Commons (JO 3.930 - ask one of us for the code). The Commons has a fridge, microwave, coffee maker as well as couches, tables, and a functioning PC with internet access.
The GSA has representatives on administration committees, presents student concerns to the administration, and seeks to inform students about official goings-on, such as changes in the program, TA hiring conditions, etc.
Monthly Informational Meetings
Each month the GSA hosts an informational meeting open to all graduate students in the School of Arts and Humanities. Each meeting will include information about some key aspect of the different A&H graduate programs, such as the foreign language requirement, the research and creative portfolio alternatives, preparing for exam fields, and other topics of interest.
Dates/times for the monthly meetings are listed in the GSA calendar, available on our organization website.
Each semester the GSA hosts a social/mixer for new and returning students. All graduate students, faculty, and staff in the School of Arts and Humanities are welcome to attend.
RAW: Graduate Student Conference
Each spring the GSA hosts a graduate student conference. RAW ("Research, Arts, and Writing") provides graduate students the opportunity to share their work with their colleagues and professors in a formal conference setting.
Graduate students from any school or institution are encouraged to submit their work.
Details about RAW can be found in the Call For Papers (CFP), published in October of each year.
