Forestry Graduate Student Association
The Forestry Graduate Student Association
(FGSA) is a representative voice for all graduate students in the School of
Forestry here at Northern Arizona University. FGSA is cooperative in design,
aiming to unite the various forestry sub-disciplines within the membership.
The purpose of the FGSA is to provide a
forum through which graduate students in the School of Forestry can interact
with one other, as well as faculty and staff. As an organization, FGSA is
entitled to have a representative (non-voting) present at all faculty and
Graduate Curriculum Committee meetings in the School of Forestry.
Some of the areas of focus of the FGSA
- The FGSA sponsors the Forestry Seminar
Series, managing all facets of the speaker series including scheduling,
recruiting and hosting speakers, and assuring that the weekly event is as
successful as possible.
- The FGSA hosts at least one social event
per year (usually the new graduate student orientation cookout).
- The FGSA specifically aims to encourage
its members to make the most of their graduate school endeavors and act as a
resource. As graduate students from diverse backgrounds (national and
international), we bring valuable experiences, knowledge, interests, skills,
energy, and imagination to our school and encounter various obstacles.
- The FGSA seeks to recognize and enhance
our individual and collective assets through interactive and participatory
means to answer questions and add supports so the each graduate student's
experience might be the fullest. Therefore, FGSA provides the organizational
basis for its members to sponsor and coordinate academic and social events, on
a variety of scales, from school and college level, on to the University and
Flagstaff communities, and beyond to regional, national, and international
Presentations by individuals from a variety of research and management backgrounds. (Graduate Student Seminar Recording Instructions)
