The Assembly members include 28 elected Senators from GAPSA's nine graduate and professional school divisions.
Senators are voting members* of the Assembly.
Senators act as their respective division's liaison to GAPSA.
Senators are appointed to GAPSA and/or non-GAPSA (i.e. University/Campus-Wide) committees or task forces.
*Failure to perform Senator's duties and responsibilities may result in loss of GAPSA Assembly voting privileges for the duration of the year.
GAPSA has two standing committees: Finance Committee and Graduate Diversity Committee
The Finance Committee serves as the fiscal manager and public trustee of the GAPSA student activity fund, which all graduate and professional students contribute to. The committee assures that the funds are properly handled for the benefit of all students. To this end, the committee will hear presentations on, investigate, and deliberate over requests for funding. In particular, the Finance Committee oversees the GAPSA and constituent Divisions' budget proposals, as well as the Collaborative Events Fund (CEF).
Graduate Diversity Committee (GDC)
The Graduate Diversity Committee (GDC) serves as the authority to recognize Interdivisional Graduate Diversity Organizations (IGDOs), which are GAPSA-sponsored Recognized Student Organizations. The committee distributes the GAPSA Affinity Fund to IGDOs. To this end, the committee will hear presentations on, investigate, and deliberate over requests for recognition and funding. The GDC also addresses diversity, inclusion, and equity issues across campus.
Interdivisional Graduate Diversity Organizations (IGDOs)
The Interdivisional Graduate Diversity Organizations (IGDOs) are GAPSA-sponsored Recognized Student Organizations (RSOs) that include members from at least three different GAPSA divisions. IGDOs have members that are almost entirely graduate and professional students. These organizations celebrate the diversity that Tulane cherishes.
