The Graduate Student
Association (GSA) provides many valuable services to the graduate student body
at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Beginning in the start of fall
semester with Graduate Student Orientation for new graduate students. Then GSA
organizes two Graduate Faculty & Student Meet & Greet; one in the Fall semester
and one in Spring; the Graduate Research Symposium & Exhibit in the spring; and monthly socials throughout the school year. The GSA also helps
to place graduate students on campus wide committees, where they represent the
voice and express the concerns of the graduate students of VCU.
The purpose of the GSA
is to serve as an advocate for the issues and needs of the graduate students
here at VCU. The GSA is committed to facilitating programs that enhance the
academic skills, professional development and social environment of all graduate
students. There is no fee to join the GSA, every graduate student is a member
and eligible to participate in and contribute to the GSA and GSA activities.
However, the GSA sponsored events are not limited to only graduate students –
all students and faculty are welcome.
