The purpose of the Creative Writing Graduate Student Association (CRWGSA) is to provide support, communication, and positive motives for educational growth to all students enrolled in the MFA program and UNCW. All MFA students are members when they enroll at UNCW.
The CRWGSA hosts MFA student readings throughout the academic year. This allows MFA students to expose other students and faculty to their work. Readings also provide a social atmosphere for MFA students and faculty outside the realm of academia.
An executive member of the CRWGSA participates as a liaison in the MFA Committee meetings. This permits students to have input on decisions affecting them and the program.
The next CRWGSA meeting will be held upstairs in Kenan Hall:
Wednesday, February 5 @ 12:00
The mandatory CRWGSA meeting for those attending the AWP Conference will be held in KE 1004 on Wednedsay, February 19 @ 12:00.
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is dedicated to improving the lives of all students seeking a graduate degree at UNCW. The membership comes from all graduate degree-granting departments. The GSA works to make the concerns and interests of the graduate student body a driving force in the university. The GSA represents the general interests of graduate students, not individual departments. In particular terms, the GSA has been responsible for the creation of the Graduate Computer Lab on Randall Library’s 2nd floor and has a program to bring speakers to campus to discuss graduate concerns. We urge you to become involved.
The campus-wide GSA meetings are (often) held on the last Sunday of the month. For full details, see http://student.uncw.edu/org/gsa/index.html.
