What is the GSA?

Dear Graduate Students,

As a UCSC grad student, you are a member of the Graduate Student Association (GSA). We serve the interests of the 1,500+ graduate students by representing your concerns to the UCSC faculty, administration, and staff, and by providing services which are more effectively addressed as a group.

We defend the interests of graduate students with regard to tuition and fees, health insurance, parking, on-campus housing, and other important issues. In addition, the GSA organizes and co-sponsors events and makes available travel grants for graduate students attending conferences or traveling on thesis-related research.

What can the GSA do for YOU? Did you know:

  • GSA income comes from student fees ($10 per quarter per student) and University Registration Fees.

  • 1/3 of the GSA budget goes to Travel Grants!

  • You may not have a department rep... are your department's interests represented?

Love organizational theory? Then read our constitution and bylaws.

We hope to see you at our next meeting.
