The Art History Graduate Student Association (AHGSA) promotes academic and professional development among the graduate students of the Art History department. Our association helps new students adjust to graduate life while also helping those nearing graduation prepare for their professional careers. Utilizing an approach informed by horizontal solidarity, the AHGSA provides a multilayered support network for graduate students in the department. The primary concerns of this association are to address pedagogical issues related to our profession, to provide hands-on opportunities for professional, academic, and personal growth, to promote departmental and university service, and to foster graduate student interaction. The AHGSA also facilitates communication with faculty and staff to address graduate student concerns.
