The Graduate School Alumni Association (GSAA) is a diverse community of 34,000 scholars and professionals working around the globe. Those holding degrees from GSAS are automatically members, and all former GSAS degree program students, visiting fellows, and junior fellows are associate members; membership is free. 

The GSAA engages alumni to promote scholarship and research at the graduate level and encourages interaction and networking among GSAS alumni and communication with GSAS. Each year, events such as Alumni Day, career panels, and workshops are organized in Cambridge and local events are sponsored around the world. 

Governed by a council of 42 GSAS alumni/ae chaired by Richard Ekman, PhD ’72, history of American civilization, the GSAA maintains an open call for nominations for the Centennial Medal and for council membership.

Colloquy, the GSAA magazine, is distributed to alumni worldwide and features articles about alumni, faculty, and graduate students, notices of alumni events, and a report from the GSAS dean. GSAS alumni are encouraged to share information for the alumni notes section and recent publications for inclusion in "Shelf Life."
