Curriculum and Instruction Graduate Student Association

Our goals for the year include:

1. Build a stronger graduate student community through an increased events and communication.

2. Break down silos between programs through designed activities that cross pollinate students from different C&I program areas.

3. Increase faculty participation in CIGSA events.
