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.


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

Come to one of our monthly informational meetings 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.

Fall/Spring Mixers

We host a social/mixer for new and returning students each semester. All graduate students, faculty and staff in the School of Arts and Humanities are welcome to attend.

RAW: Graduate Student Conference

Each spring. we host 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.
