Graduate Student Organizations

The VCU Graduate Student Association (VCU GSA) serves as an advocate for graduate students at VCU. It sponsors events such as meet-and-greets, monthly socials and the annual Graduate Research Symposium that are designed to enhance academic skills, provide professional development opportunities and facilitate an active social environment.

The GSA and the Graduate School work together to assist students with travel costs for academic conferences. The GSA places students on campuswide committees to ensure concerns of graduate students are heard.
