Greetings from GSA!   

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents graduate students at Saint Louis University. The GSA is governed by elected officers and its General Assembly consists of one representative from each graduate degree program. GSA sponsors the annual Graduate Student Research Symposium which showcases graduate student research, in both paper and poster formats. Graduate students may also apply for GSA awards for conference presentation and attendance, publication assistance, as well as summer research support towards thesis, dissertation, and exam preparation.

For more information, please see our bylaws and constitution.
