About the Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a student-led and student-run organization that provides professional and social opportunities to all past, present and future James Madison University graduate students.

The GSA was established in 2010, and thanks to the efforts of past leadership, is growing steadily in the form of participation and events.

Every graduate student is considered a part of the GSA. There are no fees. Being that graduate students are uber-busy, meetings are held the first Sunday of every month, and last no more than one hour. 

With that being said, the GSA has great things planned for the future; including graduate student workshops, professional development opportunities, socials, and networking events.  Take advantage of a great opportunity to further your graduate school life, professional careers, and the JMU community.
