What is the GSRA?
The NIU Graduate Student Research Association (GSRA) is a student
organization with the aim of promoting a culture of scholarship and fellowship
among NIU students. Specifically, the GSRA strives to provide opportunities for
all graduate and undergraduate students who are conducting research or are
interested in learning about research within and across their respective
disciplines. The GSRA provides a forum for students to share their experiences,
discuss their research interests, and learn from and with fellow students and
faculty. GSRA sponsors a variety of academic social, and community programs.
The GSRA seeks to promote the academic interests, and intellectual,
scholarly and artistic development of Northern Illinois University students by:
Sponsoring an annual research
conference for students to present their research and artistry projects to
the NIU academic community
Hosting workshops on thesis
and dissertation proposals, grant writing, data collection and analyses,
and colloquium presentations on diverse topics
Providing academic and social
support for NIU students
