Graduate Student Association

About the GSA

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is the governing body for all graduate student organizations and has an active board which is comprised of graduate students, elected yearly, from across the University. Through various Drexel committees, the GSA represents graduate students and advocates for their scholarly and professional development. All Drexel graduate students are encouraged to participate in GSA activities. 

In collaboration with the Graduate College and the Office of Student Life, the GSA and its daughter organizations host hundreds of events per year. These events meet the many interests of the graduate student population and bring together students, and even faculty and professional staff, from across disciplines and organizations. From research symposiums, academic panels, interdisciplinary workshops, and writing bootcamps to ski trips, soccer tournaments and happy hours, there is always something going on within the vibrant Drexel graduate community.
