UConn Communication Graduate Student Association
CGSA’s mission is to enhance the quality of graduate student life by both developing and maintaining a social and professional network and establishing and working toward professional and educational goals together. We aim to be a community of scholars, emphasizing both community and scholarship and building on both.
