Who you are supporting
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is the official governing body of graduate and professional students at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. We strive to be advocates for graduate students' rights both on and off-campus through UTC administrative committees, regular correspondence with the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellors, and other officials that govern UTC. As an organization, we work to ensure our graduate voice is heard by all academic programs through the Advisory Board which encompasses members of all the UTC graduate degree programs.
To further support graduate students at UTC, the Graduate Student Association is partnering with the Office of Student Outreach Support (SOS) to provide an emergency fund for UTC graduate students. The Office of SOS advocates and supports students experiencing challenges in their personal and academic lives such as financial burdens, housing or food insecurity, and hospitalization. To help relieve the burdens some graduate students face, all proceeds from the ML5K Race will be given to support this cause.
