Your Graduate Student Association (GSA)

Did you know that there’s an organization on campus that’s dedicated to representing and serving our graduate students? If not, you know now.

All students enrolled in The Graduate School are encouraged to participate in the Graduate Student Association. The GSA takes on a lot of responsibility and initiative each year to support our students. Routinely, they create opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, strive to improve the quality of graduate programs, research opportunities, and student services, and provide a forum for discussing issues important to graduate students.

The power behind the GSA comes from its committees and the executive board. Introducing the executive board…

  • President: Martin Erbele
  • Vice President: Ben Perrone
  • Secretary: Robin Garcia
  • Treasurer: Mel Campos

Want to get involved? They meet, once a month, on Friday afternoons. The remaining meetings will be held March 15th and April 19th.

Can’t wait until then? Stop by the GSA Cubicle in the Stern Center (4th floor) during their office hours.

  • Mondays 1:30-3:30pm
  • Wednesdays 10am-12pm
  • Thursdays 10am-12pm & 1-3pm & 5-7pm
  • Fridays 10am-12pm

That doesn’t work with your schedule? Make an appointment or email them at
