The vibrant student life at Fairfield isn't just reserved for undergraduates. In fact, we have an entire office dedicated to making sure the graduate experience doesn't end when you leave class.

Graduate Student Assembly


The Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) is an advisory board made up of graduate students from each program, working together to assist and advocate for the graduate student experience and the Jesuit character of our programs.

The GSA acts as the liaison between the graduate student body and the University administration. They help plan and coordinate the semester events. If you are interested in attending a Graduate Student Assembly meeting, we encourage you to attend! If you are interested in participating in GSA, please contact Graduate Student LIfe.
