UC Merced GSA

The UC Merced Graduate Student Association (GSA) is dedicated to serving the needs of the graduate and professional student population.

We are happy to serve as a resource to help you navigate your way through your time at UC Merced. 

The GSA is the official student government of the graduate and professional student population at UC Merced.  Among our many roles, we advocate on behalf the graduate and professional student population both on campus and through our coalitional membership with the UC Student Association (UCSA) and the UC Graduate and Professional Council (UCGPC), we organize graduate and professional student representation among the GSA Delegate Assembly as well as various campus and system-wide committees, highlight research opportunities, encourage student life, advocate for important issues, and organize small travel awards for graduate and professional students.  


The Graduate Student Association of the University of California, Merced is established:

  • To provide a forum where the matters of concern to graduate and professional students may be discussed,
  • Where opinions on actions and proposals of the university administration and graduate groups may be expressed through the principles of shared governance,
  • Where proposals of the Administration and graduate groups may be initiated, and
  • To conduct programs and services of special interest to graduate and professional students.
