The CGSA is a student run organization that aids graduate students in adjusting to graduate school through events held during the school year.


Our mission is to empower graduate students with knowledge about all aspects of academia. Through workshops, discussion panels, and other social events we are able to introduce students to the different areas in the field of Communication, make friends, voice concerns, and be involved. Our hope is that the knowledge gained can be applied to each student’s endeavor to succeed in their program, whether it be a Masters or PhD program.

What We Do

Communication Graduate students are automatically members of the UB CGSA, UB’s Communication Graduate Student Association. The CGSA coordinates events, both academic and social, helps with disputes against faculty, and tries to better our department through constant dedication to helping fellow students. Think of our organization as a conduit by which you can make friends, voice concerns, and be involved.
