Braniff Graduate Student Association

Representing the Braniff graduate student body

The Braniff Graduate Student Association (BGSA) of the University of Dallas was established to further the interests of the student body of the Braniff Graduate School of Liberal Arts within the University of Dallas community. All students enrolled in the Braniff Graduate School are members of the BGSA.

The BGSA is comprised of a Senate and an Executive Board. The Senate consists of six Senators, who represent the interests of the members of the BGSA on all matters concerning school policy and student life. The Senate as a whole serves as a forum for BGSA participation in the larger University community. Consisting of the President, the Treasurer, and the Secretary, the Executive Board administers the activities of the BGSA and serves as the official voice of the BGSA to the students, faculty, staff, and administration of the University.
