Graduate Student Government Association

The Graduate Student Government Association (GSGA) supports and enriches the academic experience and environment for all existing and future graduate programs.

Our success is measured by the students' awareness and access to reliable and timely information, and services and programs to help them achieve academic and professional goals. By providing a unified focus and voice, we represent the diverse and unique graduate student population within University issues and work toward common goals.

To ensure the voices of all students are heard, the GSGA has up to two representatives from every master and doctoral program.

Join us to help the St. Ambrose community. Our members serve on campus-wide committees such as Graduate Council, Commencement, Hooding, Board of Trustees, President's Advisory Board, Academic and Student Affairs, Academic Support, University Life, and Educational Policies.

If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please email President Anastasia Sperling at or the GSGA Advisor, Jason Richter.
