Curriculum and Instruction Graduate Student Association


CIGSA builds community amongst students, staff, and faculty within the Curriculum and Instruction department at the University of Minnesota. We encourage you to attend our monthly happy hours, faculty-led fireside chats, and annual research event. 

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.
