About the Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association is a student fee funded organization formed by students to promote the interests of the graduate student body at UNCG.  We meet monthly during the fall and spring semesters in joint senate and executive board meetings to discuss issues relevant to the general membership. The association is student operated and governed.  Throughout the year we award approximately $50,000 to support travel to conferences, assist with  thesis and dissertation expense, and provide grants for local community-based research.  We believe that it is our responsibility to act as good university citizens by informing ourselves about the actions of the university, the community, and the state, and to advocate for the interests of all UNCG graduate students in terms of employment, professional development, and school/life balance.
