HCS Graduate Student Association

HCS graduate students at the 2024 Graduate Research Symposium

The HCS Graduate Student Association (HCS GSA) is an organization for graduate students, led by graduate students. The purpose of the HCS GSA is to provide opportunities for interaction of current and incoming graduate students, improve student’s professional development skills through networking and professional events, provide a forum to plan academic and social events within HCS, and to serve as a liaison between graduate students and the departmental administration. All graduate students in HCS are automatically members of the GSA.

The HCS GSA is also responsible for organizing the annual Graduate Research Symposium, where HCS students and faculty from both campuses come together to share their research. The Symposium gives students a chance to highlight their research achievements, and to demonstrate the diversity, depth, and breadth of the science conducted by HCS graduate students. The two-day event is a great opportunity for students to interact with faculty and peers, to be rewarded for research excellence, and to highlight research activities and opportuntities to current and prospective students, faculty, and administrators.
