Graduate Student Association
Together, all enrolled graduate and professional students at the University of Georgia constitute and are granted automatic membership to the Graduate Student Association (GSA). A representative body is formed from members of every department, program, and graduate student-led organization at the University of Georgia. Select members of this representative body are elected to serve on UGA's University Council, as well as on numerous other administrative assemblies. Acting through and on behalf of the University's approximately 9,000 graduate and professional students, GSA develops and maintains initiatives consistent with its core mission to "Build, Support, and Illuminate." In doing so, GSA serves an important role in UGA's commitment to a culture of inclusive, progressive, and competitive graduate-professional opportunity and involvement.
