Biographical/historical note

The North Carolina State University Graduate Student Association (UGSA) was formed on October 6, 1958, in order to give the graduate students a forum for discussion and action about those events in the college community which effect them. As the years have passed, the UGSA has grown in size and stature where it now considered by both administration and graduate students to be a very important part of the community. As of 2008, approximately 60% of all graduate majors have an active UGSA chapter, meaning that a representative regularly attends meetings and participates in committees. The goals of the UGSA, as stated in the constitution, are: to provide a contact point for the administration for graduate student interests; to represent graduate students in interests which affect them; to disseminate important information to graduate students; to provide a forum for discussion of important issues; and to provide services to the graduate student body. The UGSA remains active as of 2008.
