The Graduate and Professional Student Assembly is a student assembly representing graduate student interests university wide. Fields within the College of Engineering send representatives to the assembly to address non-academic concerns, plan university-wide events for graduate students, and allocate the graduate student activity fee. The assembly meets bimonthly as a general body and more frequently within committees. In addition to the non-voting field representatives, the College of Engineering is a part of the larger “area” of Physical Sciences which elects four voting members to GPSA

Lots of Vacant Seats! Each field is responsible for selecting their own representatives. Contact your Graduate Student Director for more information about joining GPSA as a field representative.
