All students in the Department of Near & Middle Eastern Civilizations are members of the Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations Graduate Students’ Association (NMCGSA).
At the end of each academic year, the student body elects student officials to form the Executive Council for the following year, who will deal with graduate student matters on their behalf. The Executive Council meets on a regular basis to attend to any concern or issue brought to the attention of the Executive by its student members, plan socials and other recreational activities, organize the Annual Graduate Students’ Symposium, oversee the publication of the Symposium proceedings, and act as a liaison between the faculty and the students.
The NMCGSA also has a representative at the University’s Graduate Students’ Union (GSU), who deals with graduate student matters and concerns across the university.
