Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association is the governance body for the graduate student population. The GSA serves the graduate population in three ways; advocacy, professional development, and service/resources.

Our History

The University at Albany Graduate Student Organization (GSO) was voted into existence in the Spring of 1990 to address the needs of the University at Albany graduate students. In 2013, its name was changed to the University at Albany Graduate Student Association (GSA).

Our Mission

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) encourages and supports professional development, social, and intellectual interaction between all graduate students at the University at Albany. The GSA is a governing body which advocates on behalf of graduate students through membership in the University Senate as well as administrative structures. Our mission is to advocate for and provide resources to graduate students to empower us as a community. Through our self-empowerment we also seek to promote the values of social justice, equity, sustainability, and academic freedom.
