The GPSA represents graduate and professional (but not law) students at the University of Idaho. Undergraduate students are represented by the ASUI and law students are represented by the SBA. The GPSA body is composed of an executive branch, a judicial branch, and a legislative branch composed of senators that represent academic departments with graduate programs. GPSA Senate meetings are typically every other Tuesday evening from 6:30 - 7:30pm (occasionally they may run until 8pm) and are usually held in the Idaho Commons (or Bruce M. Pitman Center).
The Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) supports and promotes graduate student education, campus sustainability, and graduate student life at the University of Idaho. This includes creating programs and assisting graduate students during their transition from student life to professional life. The GPSA is also committed to providing a collective voice for graduate students to the University and the State
Please list information about the organizations selection process and include membership requirements if applicable.
Every graduate student at the University of Idaho (except law students) is a member of GPSA. Each department is entitled to a GPSA Senate representative. Each department needs to have a Senator on the GPSA Senate in order to be eligible for both travel awards and TEGA workshop awards.
