GSA informs current and incoming students of their academic and social endeavors for the 2014-2015 academic year.

Author: Elizabeth Fucich, GSA student ambassador | Category: Around Campus | August 22, 2014

UTHSCSA’s Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a student-led organization that aims to unify the graduate student body, which includes students in programs across our many campuses and even joint programs with UTSA. The GSA’s mission focuses on three main facets of the student experience: academic environment, activities, and advocacy. To this end, events and opportunities for students were highlighted at GSA’s first general meeting of the 2014-2015 academic year.

At this initial meeting, students hailed from the Integrated Biomedical Sciences, Biomedical Engineering, Radiological Sciences, Dental Science, and Medical Physics graduate programs. Officers Peter LoCoco, Stacey Stahl, Mikaela Sifuentes, Calais Williams, and Elizabeth Fucich were introduced, as well as our new staff advisor Dr. Teresa Evans. Upcoming events were announced such as the HSC Gala and Student Dance on September 13 and the GSA-hosted Biomedical Career Fair (1PM – 4PM) and Student Government Association’s Chili Cook-off (5PM) on October 30. Plans were discussed to host an even bigger Mikiten Research Forum in the spring, which provides an opportunity for every graduate student to present their research, no matter what stage. Before raffling some sweet UTHSCSA bags and breaking out into a social mixer, nominations were taken for officer elections that will take place in our September general meeting, and students signed up for planning committees for the career fair and research forum.

Check our website for the slides from our first meeting, which also contain helpful details and contact information regarding student services. Also on the website, you can nominate yourself or someone you know for an officer position before our September vote, or provide feedback on issues you would like the GSA to advocate this year. Please send any questions or ideas to your GSA officers at, and be on the look out for our next meeting announcement!
