The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a student organization representing the interests of all graduate students at Gallaudet University, advocating for the academic, professional, and social goals of the graduate student body. 

Our purpose is to: 

  • promote academic excellence
  • provide a forum for the expression of opinion by graduate students
  • organize events 
  • provide relevant training and professional development
  • facilitate communications and joint activities among graduate school departments. 


We advise the faculty, deans, the provost, and the president through participation on the Faculty Senate, University Budget Committee, and other standing ad hoc committees. We also report to the Board of Trustees at three annual meetings. The Graduate Student Association collects student union fees, managing the organization’s budget and authorizing expenditures.


All graduate students are considered active, voting members of the Graduate Student Association. `
