WELCOME TO THE UCLA GRADUATE STUDENTS ASSOCIATION
GSA is the official graduate student government at UCLA. We are a student-run and student-elected organization that advocates on behalf of students and creates programs that enhance student experience at UCLA. GSA also hosts socials, movie screenings, and other events that brighten up the UCLA graduate student experience. We aim to promote student advocacy on a local, state, and national level to ensure the affordability, accessibility, quality, and diversity of UCLA. Most notably, GSA is a space that takes action around issues that students are concerned about. Our organization consists of more than 50 graduate students that are led by the four GSA elected officers to implement projects and endeavors to help you survive and thrive during your graduate studies at UCLA. Involvement in GSA is a great way to gain leadership experience and to learn about the administration. We encourage you to join us in the many initiatives that we are pursuing this year by applying to the positions that are on the "Get Involved" page today!

The Graduate Students Association (GSA) was established in 1936 to promote the interests of all graduate and professional students at UCLA. More than simply graduate student government, GSA is a student-run, ASUCLA-affiliated organization that sponsors a variety of social, academic, and community programs. Our representatives serve on several campus committees to give graduate and professional students a voice in administrative decisions. Our goal is to enrich and improve the entire graduate educational experience.
