The Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana started as an association with less than hundred (100) members in 1993. In that same year GRASAG KNUST was formed. GRASAG KNUST is a local branch of the Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana and the official representative of the entire graduate students of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology. It has a membership of over six thousand (6,000) students. GRASAG KNUST encompasses groups of persons, institutions, organizations etc. recognized under the statutes of the University and pursuing post-graduate work.
The Graduate Students' Association of Ghana (GRASAG), is the official student government association of postgraduate students in KNUST. The association serves to engage students in learning about democracy and leadership, as originally espoused by John Dewey. The association is a representative structure for post graduate students only, through which they can become involved in the affairs of the university, working in partnership with university authorities for the benefit of the university and its students. It has continuously championed and safeguarded the right and interest of all postgraduate students of this university and in equal measure, aided the University in enhancing student privileges. GRASAG makes representation on most university boards and committees that take major policy decisions affecting students. An example of such is the university council and academic board on which the GRASAG president serves. GRASAG core function is to represent, promote and champion the rights, interests and views of postgraduate students in all matters to ensure students well-being. In essence, we are there for your welfare.
