UMBC’s Graduate Student Association, or GSA, represents the interests and concerns of all graduate students attending UMBC, by providing them with a forum for discussions of and recommendations on matters involving graduate students and their welfare at UMBC. GSA plays an active role in campus shared governance, claiming a spot on the University Steering Committee along with representatives of the Faculty Senate, Non-Exempt Staff Senate, Professional Staff Senate, and Student Government Association.
The GSA’s mission is:
• To support, promote and represent all graduate students at UMBC;
• To provide a forum for discussions of and recommendations on matters involving graduate students and their welfare at UMBC; and
• To provide opportunities for intellectual, professional and social development through grants, public presentation of research, graduate community events and campus service support.
