Graduate Student Senate

Graduate Student Association

The USF School of Education Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents all credential, master's and doctoral students in the School of Education. We provide forums to foster meaningful, positive relationships among students, faculty, administration, and alumni. We examine, formulate, and implement programs, activities, and events that will improve the educational experience of credential, master's and doctoral students, in conjunction with faculty and administration.
