Graduate Student Groups
The GSA is here to enhance the experience of all grad students, and one of the ways in which we do this is by encouraging engagement by facilitating Graduate Student Groups (GSGs) We encourage you to start your own group based on research, cultural, or special interests.
By registering your Graduate Student Group with the GSA, you are eligible to receive Start-up Grant and Event Grants. Please review the GSG Handbook and Policy. If you have any questions, please contact the VP Student Life at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Governance Coordinator at email@example.com
