Welcome CS Graduate Student Association at CU!

The Computer Science Graduate Students Association (CSGSA) is a student organization run by and for graduate students from the Computer Science Department at CU Boulder. Its main goal is to foster community amongst graduate students in the Department of Computer Science and other affiliated departments/institutes. To encourage such community, the CSGSA will arrange social events, professional development events, and serve as a central forum of representation for graduate students, representing graduate students’ interests to the department and broader university administration. In addition the CSGSA will inform and support graduate students throughout their program of study.

Some of the current members of the CSGSA leadership committee.
Back row- Gerard, John, Jay, and Stephen.

The CSGSA arranges and promote events each semester. Events will be varied and appeal to a variety of audiences. Members will be notified of events with plenty of notice and guidance given as to expected atmosphere (e.g. family friendly). Promote awareness of CSGSA activities to current students
