Graduate Student Association

The Spanish & Portuguese Graduate Student Association (SPGSA) acts as a bridge between graduate students, our faculty colleagues, and the wider UCLA community. Members of this annually elected student organization represent Spanish & Portuguese graduate students at faculty meetings, Humanities Council meetings, and with the departmental Graduate Affairs Committee and Lower Division Council. SPGSA organizes 1-2 meetings per quarter to discuss issues relevant to graduate students, to share career planning and academic professionalization information with peers, and to create a social forum to involve new and continuing graduate students in our scholarly community. SPGSA also provides support to other graduate student organizations including the Annual Graduate Student Conference, Motus Sodalis, UCLadino, the Latin American Film and Television Working Group, and the publications Mester and Párrafo.
