About the GSA

Welcome to the Graduate Student Association for the School of Education at Boston University.

If you have not heard, the Student Activities Office awarded the GSA with the best graduate student organization for the entire university.  We want to continue the tradition of building a learning community, and this year we will be partnering with the undergraduate student government in a variety of activities.

We already have quite a few events planned for the coming year. Check out the events page. If you have an idea for an event, please come to a meeting and let us know.

To stay informed on GSA activities, please sign-up for our email list.

Organized over 30 years ago, the School of Education Graduate Student Association (GSA) seeks to promote programming for the graduate students in the School of Education and Boston University community. The GSA plans and sponsors events that assist School of Education graduate students to acclimate to the University, promote awareness of current issues in education, and develop a sense of community.

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) at the School of Education is both the student government and primary social event sponsor for graduate students. Our events are also open to faculty and staff.

Board members are elected (or drafted) in the spring.

Participation GSA is open for any graduate student to in the SED community. Participation can range from organizing an event, playing on an intramural team, or helping with this website.

The current constitution for the GSA was approved in July 2013.
