The Graduate Student Association (GSA) comprises degree seeking graduate students at Rice University. The GSA’s mission is to enrich the graduate student experience by advocating for the physical and psychological wellbeing of graduate students, promoting graduate career and professional development resources, and empowering graduate student-run social programming for the Rice community.

The 2019-2020 GSA Executive board has made the following priorities for this academic year:

  • Engaging our community leaders
    • Departmental GSA’s, GSA council reps, University Committee reps, and our cultural and affinity group leaders
  • Leadership development for members of the GSA Cabinet and our campus leaders
  • Community engagement
    • Enriching programming for our diverse graduate student population
  • Wellbeing
  • Professional development
  • Advocacy

Graduate school is difficult in its own right, however, the way we live does not have to be.
