The Comparative Literature Graduate Student Association (CLGSA) acts as a bridge between graduate students, faculty, the Humanities Administrative Group (HAG) and the wider UCLA community. Members of this annually elected student organization identify and advocate for the academic, administrative, professional, and cultural needs of Comparative Literature graduate students.

Members of the CLGSA attend Faculty Meetings, host quarterly Town Hall meetings, professionalization workshops and social gatherings. The CLGSA also curates online resources for students of the department on the CCLE Comparative Literature Graduate Student Site.

By providing a proactive forum for graduate students to share resources and communicate with Faculty, staff and alumni, the CLGSA wishes to promote a sustainable intellectual, teaching and comparative environment.
