Student Life

On Campus

Campus life in Newark is active and engaging.  In addition to the university wide events calendar, DGA has a robust schedule of events during the academic year. Students can also take part several DGA student organizations, including: Sigma Iota Rho Honor Society (SIR), the Student Association for Global Affairs (SAGA), and the DGA Newsletter Team.  

DGA strives to make every student, faculty, and staff member feel welcome!  Along with SAGA, a number of social events are hosted each semester, including the Thanksgiving Potluck, the Winter Holiday Potluck, and the International Food Festival.  Additionally, SAGA hosts game nights and monthly off-campus social mixers at a restaurant within walking distance from campus.  Associate Director Natalie Jesionka also hosts several "Chat and Chai" events throughout the semester, in which she invites successful early career leaders in their respective fields to network with DGA students in a relaxed setting. 

Additionally, students are able to cooperate with a variety of on-campus research centers such as DGA's own Center for the Study of Emergent Threats in the 21st Century, as well as Rutgers University's Center for Public Security and the Center for the Study of Genocide and Human Rights.  The interdisciplinary nature of the program offers students the ability to find a niche within the university that best fits their interests.
