Graduate Student Association for Consumer, Apparel, and Retail Studies
The UNCG Graduate Student Association (GSA) is an organization designed to enhance the experience of graduate students as they move through their advanced courses of study. The GSA serves as the collective voice of the graduate student body, interacting with UNCG faculty and administration and advocating for helpful changes to continually advance opportunities and the overall graduate experience at the university.
The GSA is run by an executive board. Every graduate student at UNCG is a member of GSA’s legislative body and is encouraged to attend meetings and be an active member.
In addition to the university-wide GSA, the CARS department has an affiliate association, known as the Consumer, Apparel and Retail Studies Graduate Student Association (CARS GSA). The primary objective of the CARS GSA is to help build networks and research collaborations among graduate students, organize student activities such as graduate socials and seminars, and assist graduate students in CARS with securing funds for conference attendance and scholarship presentation from the main Graduate Student Association body.
