As a body of student representatives, the GSAE consists of elected officers as well as the general student population. Decisions are made by consensus, with all members having a voice in decision making. The purpose of the association is to promote student participation in a manner that is rewarding, challenging, and supportive. Some of the responsibilities of GSAE are to provide mentorship and relay campus information to new and continuing students. The Council also organizes and participates in numerous events including the Fall Orientation and Spring Graduation Reception, as well as colloquia on topics of interest to graduate students throughout the year.
The GSAE meets regularly to discuss issues that are relevant to the students in Gevirtz School. Every graduate student in the Gevirtz School is invited to participate in the monthly association meetings, which are presently held on the third Tuesday of each month at 2 pm in the “New Blue Room” lounge, 3134 Education Bldg.
