Graduate Student Association


The Graduate Student Association (GSA), is a student-led organization that serves as the official voice for graduate and professional students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. The GSA represents and acts on behalf of graduate students by participating in student government, appointing representatives to university administrative committees and developing programs geared towards providing opportunities for academic development. GSA also organizes and sponsors social networking events that bring together graduate and professional students from across campus. All graduate students enrolled at UTC are automatically members of the GSA, and are invited to attend events and meetings.
