Graduate Student Association

GSA E-Board 2019-2020

About the Graduate Student Association (GSA)

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is the governing body for all graduate student organizations registered with Student Life and serves all graduate students across Drexel's colleges and schools. The Executive Board Members of the GSA are nominated and elected by current Drexel students annually in the spring and serve for one fiscal year (July 1 - June 30). In collaboration with the Graduate College, Student Life and various academic and student support offices University-wide, the GSA and its daughter organizations host hundreds of programs and events for graduate students each year. These events meet the many interests of the graduate student population at Drexel and bring together students, faculty and professional staff across academic disciplines and organizations. From research symposiums, academic panels, interdisciplinary workshops, and writing boot camps to ski trips, white water rafting, intramural sports and happy hours, there is something for everyone in our vibrant Drexel graduate student community. All current Drexel graduate students (and in some cases alumni, faculty and professional staff) are encouraged to participate in GSA and daughter organizations' programs and events.
