Each College House has a diverse team of Graduate Associates (or GAs), graduate students selected from the doctoral and professional programs of the University's twelve schools. GAs bring a slightly different viewpoint to the life of the community and also offer special academic or professional expertise in their fields of study. GAs sponsor or join in the numerous academic and co-curricular activities of each College House.
GA Applications will open on January 31, 2017 for all interested and qualified applicants.
Current GA staff members wishing to re-apply to return for another year will be allowed to apply beginning November 29, 2016. Click here to begin or resume a returning GA application.
