The Communication Graduate Student Association (CGSA) is affiliated with the Graduate Student Association (GSA) at UB and organizes academic and social events throughout the year. All MA and PhD students will be invited to join CGSA at the graduate program orientation and have opportunities to take an active role to serve the community in various positions.
CGSA leadership also sends a representative to attend faculty meetings to help voice student concerns and advocate for beneficial causes. CGSA also works closely with the Director of Graduate Studies to design and facilitate professional development workshops. Recent workshops include topics such as “job search within and beyond academia”, “Sona research management service”, “Qualtrics online research platform”, and “attending conferences and building CVs”.
