The English Graduate Organization and the Graduate Student Association provide English graduate students with access to a range of activities and resources. Graduate students have the opportunity to attend workshops, discussions, performances, lectures, and readings within the University and in the wider D.C. area.

The English Graduate Organization serves the interests of graduate students enrolled in the English M.A. and Ph.D. programs. Their focus is twofold: first, to promote community among English graduate students, and second, to support them as professional teachers and scholars as they prepare for the job market. Current events include monthly "professionalization" lunches with faculty, the graduate mentoring program for first-year M.A. and new Ph.D. students, research colloquia, and department socials.

The Graduate Student Association is dedicated to the academic, cultural, and professional development of all graduate students enrolled at Catholic University. As the official voice of graduate students, the Graduate Student Association responds to the needs and concerns of the graduate community and strives to improve the quality of education and life at the University, acting fully within the University’s mission statement and governing documents. They support graduate student conferences and events throughout the academic year.
