The Graduate Student Assembly seeks to improve the academic, social, and professional lives of graduate students at The University of Texas at Austin. We achieve this purpose through our work to secure and protect the rights of all graduate students, to promote graduate student interests and opinions, and to create and promote programs and initiatives to benefit graduate students. We work to serve as a voice for graduate students on matters of academics, student welfare, and campus policy, and to create professional and social opportunities for engagement and collaboration.
Since 1968, the Graduate Student Assembly has represented graduate students at UT Austin through positions elected and appointed, including voting members, officers, directors, and graduate representatives to university governance committees. Graduate students are encouraged to participate in the Graduate Student Assembly through these opportunities and more.
