SFSU - Graduate Student AssociationCollege & University in San Francisco, California
Hey all, I wanted to pass this information on to all of you. In our Academic Senate meeting yesterday, we approved a resolution to support GTA/GAs in the form of tuition waivers/remission. I am very happy about this as I have been in those committee meetings advocating on behalf of graduate students before this document reached the senate. While there is not a set policy in place as of yet, the university is moving in the right direction to support our esteemed graduate stude...nts.
Here is a link to the resolution: https://docs.google.com/…/1bDz06ORIwVhCvoP-S8HAe276hxCn…/pub
Have a great day!
-Steven Gomez (Graduate Representative)
On Wednesday November 30, the Associated Students (AS) will be holding a town hall on Malcolm X Plaza from 12-2pm. AS will be informing students about the possible 17-18 tuition increase proposed by the CSU Chancellor and discussing strategies on what we, the students, can do to prevent tuition from rising.
The CSU Chancellor's Office has proposed a possible tuition increase for the 17-18 academic year which would affect all CSU students. Graduate students and other post-baccalaureate students, in particular, would be hit with an increase of $438+. To learn more and share your story on how this would affect you, please visit: http://tuition.calstatestudents.org/

Greetings fellow graduate students! Please share and support our College of Ethnic Studies and their newly announced scholarship for graduate students!
San Francisco State University’s College of Ethnic Studies has just started a scholarship for graduate students working at the intersection of race and sexualit...y.
Don’t be shy, donate $5, $10, or even $100 to the Queer Ethnic Studies Scholarship on National Give OUT Day, August 2, 2016. Go to https://www.giveoutday.org/c/GO/a/ucorpsfsu.
Last year we awarded our inaugural scholarship to Fresno State graduate Jacqueline Alvarez who will be starting in the MA program in Philosophy at San Francisco State University. At Fresno she was President of the Diversity Caucus and Radical Feminists Against Sexual Assault and completed a project on hermaneutical injustices against Chicana lesbian literature.
Help us support students who are engaged in community and doing research on queers of color.
