History Graduate Association


The History Graduate Association is the independent graduate student organization within the Department of History. All M.A. and Ph.D. students and candidates are members of the organization by default. The association aims to facilitate the professionalization and socialization of the graduate students in the department, as well as serve as the intermediary between the student body and department leadership. Officers are elected every spring and serve one-year terms. The HGA hosts social events each fall and spring, and organizes a student-led conference during the spring semester.  The current officers of the association are listed below, along with a copy of the current HGA bylaws. Minutes are maintained for every meeting of the HGA officers, and are available to any current student upon request. Prospective, incoming, and current graduate students are encouraged to reach out to the officers with any questions or concerns.
