Graduate Student Association


Welcome to the Graduate Student Association (GSA) at UMBC. The mission of GSA is to support, promote and represent all graduate students at UMBC. All Graduate Students at UMBC are members of the GSA. 

The GSA is funded by one of your mandatory fees, and we take that responsibility seriously. We urge you to take advantage of the resources we offer.

The GSA provides:

  • Opportunities for Leadership and Professional Development
  • Grants (for Research and/or Professional Development)
  • Graduate community events
  • Campus Resources and Support, such as a graduate peer writing tutor
  • Opportunities for discussions and recommendations on the Graduate Student Experience, both academic and social

To receive notifications of these opportunities and events when they are scheduled, you must opt-in to our mailing list by following us on myUMBC.

For more information on the GSA please visit our website.

We look forward to meeting you in person and virtually throughout the school year.

Grace De Oro, GSA President (
