About GSA

Mission Statement

The Graduate Student Assembly is an elected body of Yale students in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. The Assembly’s goals are to identify the needs and concerns of graduate students, consider possible solutions, and present these to the Dean and other administrators. We also discuss, propose, and advise on possible changes to Graduate School policy proposed by the administration. The assembly provides a means for communication and deliberation both among graduate students and between graduate students and other members of the Yale community.

We encourage you to attend a GSA meeting

GSA meets on alternate Mondays via Zoom at 6:00 pm for the remainnder of the academic year. All graduate students are welcome to speak at General Assembly Meetings, and you may obtain the link from your graduate representative. Meeting dates and times are on the GSA calendar.

Please share your concerns with us

Are you frustrated with something at Yale? Do you have a suggestion? We are always open to new issues and concerns raised by graduate students. Please bring your observations and ideas to our attention. Here’s how:

  • Voice your concerns at an Assembly meeting. We recommend contacting the GSA in advance.
  • Email your departmental GSA representative.
