School of Graduate Studies and Research

Graduate Student Association

The CWU Graduate Students Association (GSA) provides representation and the promotion of graduate students' interests on this campus.  The GSA’s mission is to unite students across disciplines by focusing on a common professional identity, promoting student success, offering social gatherings, and encouraging philanthropic outreach.  We also realize that the nature of graduate study requires that a governing body that does not unduly burden the individual graduate student.  In our relationship with the Graduate School, we affirm with the administration that effective graduate education operates from fair and responsible representation of all graduate students; this body provides a student voice to departments and the Graduate School. If you are interested in finding out more, please email  Alexandra (Allie) Sheldon, President of the GSA at
