Graduate Student Association
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) at the University of Northern Colorado (UNC) is an institution-wide organization that seeks to advance the interests of approximately 3,000 UNC graduate students through the representation of their needs and support of activities central to graduate education.
The GSA organizes the distribution of the largest pool of research and conference grant funding available to all graduate students at UNC. Grant applications are received over four grant cycles throughout the year.
The GSA is also tasked with contributing to the well-being of the graduate community. The GSA coordinates numerous social events and professional development programs, develops campus and community partnerships, appoints graduate students to campus committees and provides general support to UNC graduate students.
