English Graduate Student Association (EGSA)

NOTE: For Spring 2021, the English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) meets Thursday mornings at 9:30am. Please reach out to any officer listed below for the Zoom meeting information and link. Come join us. Your attendance is most welcome! 

The English Graduate Student Association (EGSA) is a professional and social organization that empowers graduate students with a voice in departmental affairs and encourages relationships between graduate students and faculty.

EGSA makes recommendations to the Department Chair and the Graduate Director regarding non-teaching assignments, evaluation of graduate programs, and graduate student grievances.

EGSA also promotes interaction between members of the various specializations within the department. Graduate students of each specialization can learn from the others, so EGSA facilitates interaction between our diverse membership to further our common goals.

In order to encourage graduate students in the English Department to participate in activities that will aid them in their professional development, EGSA offers annual  scholarships in a variety of categories.  For more information about EGSA scholarships, please see go here.
