Anthropology Graduate Student Association

The Anthropology Graduate Student Association (AGSA) is a student collective responsible for managing student affairs, organizing social activities, and articulating graduate students’ interests to the department and the university as a whole. The AGSA appoints representatives as voting members on several department and campus committees, and liaises with other organizations on campus. A new group of student representatives are elected each year.

Student Representation on Department Committees:

The AGSA elects one Anthropology representative to attend Department meetings. Two individuals, representing Anthropology MA and PhD students respectively, sit on the Anthropology Graduate Student Committee (AGSC). Representatives are treated as full voting participants in these meetings except on matters concerning individual graduate students. The graduate representatives must leave the meetings when such discussions take place (usually during the latter portion of AGSC meetings and the May Department meeting).

The Graduate Student Association may request participation on other committees when they feel the interests of graduate students need representation. Generally, graduate students may not attend meetings of the Anthropology Caucus as individual students are occasionally discussed in that setting.  However, policies developed in the Caucus must be brought before the entire Department before they can be implemented. Graduate students thus always have opportunities for both formal and informal involvement in Department policy.
