UC Merced GSA

The UC Merced Graduate Student Association (GSA) is dedicated to serving the needs of the graduate and professional student population.  We're 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 student population at UC Merced.  Among our many roles, we advocate on behalf the graduate student population both on campus and through our membership with the UC Student Association (UCSA), we organize graduate student representation among various campus committees, encourage graduate student life, 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,
  • Where proposals of the Administration and graduate groups may be initiated, and
  • To conduct programs and services of special interest to graduate students.
