Make the most of your graduate school experience and go beyond the classroom by joining a student organization.
Graduate & Professional Student Association
The mission and purpose of the Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) is to serve as a liaison for all CSU graduate students, to provide CSU graduate students with an on-campus social and professional network and to promote the interests of graduate students in all disciplines in a fair and equitable way.
General meetings are open to all Cleveland State University master's, doctoral and law students from all Colleges and programs. Students in their final year of undergraduate studies and newly admitted students are also invited to join.
Membership and involvement looks great on a resume, plus there's no charge to join. GPSA offers leadership roles in event planning, membership and recruitment, social media and more.

Join a Student Organization
