Graduate Student Associations
The graduate student associations are funded by graduate student fees to enhance the intellectual and social life of graduate students. The organizations include: the Graduate Student Association in the College of Arts and Sciences; the Graduate Business Student Association; the Graduate Student Association in the School of Leadership and Education Sciences; and the Graduate Nursing Students’ Association. There is also a Graduate Student Council with a representative from each of the schools and the college. Each organization elects its own slate of officers to represent it before the university administration and each association functions as a service organization. Although not every association provides the same services, many hold social functions throughout the year, provide scholarship assistance, award fellowships and assist students with job placement.
