Health Agency (GHSA)

The Graduate Student Health Agency (GSHA) works to improve the overall health of graduate students at UT. Through partnerships and teamwork with University Health Services, the Counseling and Mental Health Center, the Longhorn Wellness Center, University Housing and Dining, and other campus entities, we aspire to improve both physical and mental health among graduate students. This past year, the GSHA has partnered primarily with the UT Longhorn Wellness center to offer a variety of workshops focused on developing coping strategies for dealing with the stress of graduate school. We've also partnered with Operation Naloxone at the UT College of Pharmacy to educate our members about emergency opioid overdose response, how to administer this lifesaving measure, and where to access resources on campus.

If you would like to help out with the GSHA, commitments will vary depending on roles and will be in your control. You don't have to have a background or any experience in the health field. All that we ask is that you have a positive attitude, the ability to work on a team, a desire to improve the health of graduate students.

If you would like to get involved in this agency please contact our director, Jiaying Liu.

Throughout the year Voting Graduate Student Agency will focus on information campaigns related to voting laws, voter registration drives and election events.

International Student Agency (ISA)

The International Student Agency (ISA) exists to make the transition to educational life in America easier for international graduate students, whether they are here for a semester on exchange, or plan on spending years receiving quality education. Our online resources provide valuable information compiled by students who have undergone this unique experience a year ago. We believe that there is value in understanding the cultures of students from across the globe. Our events, whether social or educational are catered towards providing a platform outside the classroom for multicultural interaction.
