Graduate Student Association in Education

The Gevirtz Graduate School of Education has an active Graduate Student Association in Education (GSAE) officially representing the “student voice” to the GGSE and the UCSB community. It is a body where students work and meet together to address pertinent issues. In addition to addressing issues of an administrative, academic, or research nature, students involved in the GSAE promote a positive “student life environment,” encouraging participation and mutual support among students. The goals are to make participation rewarding, challenging, and supportive; to be a representative, democratic, and participatory organization where decisions are made by consensus, where all members have a voice in decision making, and where the body represents all student voices; to have a cooperative and open relationship with the faculty and staff, based on mutual respect; and to aid the GGSE in its responsibility to recruit and support diverse and underrepresented populations.
