Organization Overview


The Graduate Student Association, or (GSA) for short, oversees the entire graduate student body at Grand Valley in regards to student governance, and the administration of the student life budget for all graduate organizations. Partnering with the Office of Graduate Studies, Graduate Council, University Academic Senate and the Office of the President, the GSA carries graduate student issues and opinions to GVSU administration. The GSA promotes graduate student governance and culture at Grand Valley. The GSA strives to promote interdisciplinary communication and collaboration in order to enhance a holistic graduate student experience. By fostering the development of a graduate student community at Grand Valley State University, graduate students will develop academically, intellectually, professionally, and socially. The GSA plans and coordinates activities throughout the year aimed at building graduate student culture at Grand Valley, and helps students build professional networks across all disciplines (e.g. GradClub, held every Wednesday at the Graduate Student Commons, Pew Campus). GSA also emphasizes career development through its integrated PACES programming, which is cosponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies
