Graduate Student Association (GSA)

The primary goal of the Graduate Student Association for the College of Education, Criminal Justice, and Human Services is to provide information, build community, and provide a voice to the entire graduate students enrolled within the college of CECH. We are allotted an annual fixed budget from the Graduate Student Governing Association (GSGA) to sponsor conferences, host guest speakers, and hold social functions for the graduate students within CECH.

The primary goals of the CECH-GSA are to:

  1. Build a community of graduate students in the college
  2. Give all graduate students a voice in the college
  3. Provide information to graduate students
