Chemistry Graduate Student Association


The Chemistry Graduate Student Association (CGSA) is an organization of Chemistry graduate students that represents their interests, provides community building events and offers additional on-campus resources for graduate students.

About CGSA

All graduate students in the Chemistry Graduate Group are automatically considered constituents of the CGSA and membership is granted to any student interested in participating in CGSA business and events.

CGSA serves three main purposes:

  • Facilitates and provides funding for group events, academic, social, and professional, that engage the graduate student body, and when appropriate, staff, faculty and administration.
  • Serves as a forum for graduate student input into the Chemistry Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC), as well as communicates current news and events pertaining to the University of California and UC Davis Chemistry Department.
  • Provides Chemistry students information and access to campus-wide and graduate group specific resources offered by the university-wide Graduate Student Association (GSA)
