Purpose

The Agronomy and Horticulture Graduate Student Association will serve as the representative body for graduate students in the Department of Agronomy and Horticulture at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. We work to promote interaction and a closer relationship among graduate students. The AHGSA will serve as a channel of communication between graduate students and faculty and staff. We will also investigate problems and issues unique to graduate students and propose solutions to them.
