Starting a New Graduate Student Organization

Please email with questions concerning the Graduate Student Association and/or your GSO.

How do I start a new Graduate Student Organization?

Anyone can create a student organization, for (nearly) any purpose.

First, check to see if a similar organization already exists. The university wide student organizations can be found here. The GSO Directory lists all the graduate student groups that are currently recognized by the GSA.

Groups that apply for, and are granted, formal recognition by the Gradate Student Association are known as Graduate Student Organizations (GSOs). The advantages of adhering to the GSA requirements and gaining this recognition include:

  • Being able to reserve rooms and space at the university.
  • Being eligible to apply for funding support from the GSA. Please read the appropriate forms for details.
  • Being able to request an eden email account & web space.

Please see the Recognition FAQ for more information.
