The Graduate Students Association in Education (GSAE) – the official students’ association that exists to promote and represent the interests of students in the Gevirtz School’s Department of Education to the UC Santa Barbara campus community on administrative, academic, and student affairs – has announced its elected officials for 2022-23.

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 serves and supports the individual and collective needs of students. Some of the responsibilities of GSAE are to relay campus information to new and continuing students and create opportunities for structured conversations around important topics. To this end, GSAE forwards information about community events and social organizing to new and continuing students. Importantly, GSAE works to build community amongst students, staff, and faculty.
