Recognized Graduate Student Organization

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) recognizes student groups on campus called Recognized Graduate Student Organizations (RGSO). GSA supports RGSOs through the provision of funds and other programming support.
To receive funding, RGSO meetings and events are required to be free and open for all fee-paying graduate students. These events are announced on the Listserv.
