Graduate Student Association Welcomes 2014-2015 Executive Board Members

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Graduate Student Association (GSA) and welcome the newly elected Executive Board members!  The GSA is the student governing body for Peirce College students enrolled in the graduate program. It serves as an additional support system for students and advocates to help further the interests of graduate students. In addition, the GSA will host various events for graduate students and the Peirce community as a whole including guest speakers, workshops for APA, civic engagement opportunities, networking opportunities, and more.

The GSA is governed by a student-elected Executive Board and a faculty advisor representing Peirce College. Graduate students voted for the current board via electronic ballot the week of September 29th. The 2014-2015 GSA board members were announced on October 5th, its board members are:

  • President - Steven Amster
  • Vice President - Karl Fritz
  • Secretary/Treasurer - John Morris
  • Programs Coordinator - Alyssa Dorney
  • Student Senators - Beverly Diggins and Mary Grassia
If you’re enrolled in the Peirce College graduate program you’ve already been granted membership to GSA.  Although it’s too late to run for a board position this year, graduate students are encouraged to stay involved with GSA. There will be a variety of volunteer opportunities, including at events, and a general meeting for all students once per term. If you’d like to learn more about the GSA and how you can be involved, please email me.

Congratulations on the launch of GSA and to the 2014-2015 GSA Executive Board members!
