Chemistry Graduate Student Association (CGSA)


The goal of the CGSA is to facilitate the academic and professional development of graduate students and promote peer to peer interaction among graduate students and professors in the Department of Chemistry at MSU. CGSA strives to support graduate students who attend professional speaking and presentation engagements or technical and research-related seminars via financial support. We also promote graduate student involvement in academic and social events within the Department, organize fundraisers, organize the annual Lester Andrews Symposium, and address graduate student concerns.


All Graduate students currently enrolled (Full-time or Part-time) in a Chemistry Masters or Chemistry Doctoral degree in the Department of Chemistry at MSU are eligible for membership in the CGSA. This membership does not require registration or dues and every Graduate student is automatically enrolled as a CGSA member upon completion of their first semester of study. Membership in the CGSA does not take into consideration race, color, creed, nationality, sex, disability or sexual orientation.
