The Graduate and Professional Student Association President oversees and coordinates the many moving parts and departments that make up GPSA. The President also acts as a liaison to the ASU administration, as well as represents graduate students on the ASU Council of Presidents (COP). COP brings together the 4 Undergraduate Student Government Presidents from each campus, as well as the GPSA President, to coordinate programming and advocacy efforts across all of ASU.
Leah Jones, 2019-2020 President
I am a 4th year Ph.D. candidate in the School of Sustainability. I joined GPSA two years ago as a way to give back to the ASU community and found it to be a fun, inspiring, and impactful experience. I've loved serving the graduate community here at ASU and giving voice to all students and their concerns, ideas, and visions. Outside of research and GPSA, I can be found baking desserts, reading a novel, or hiking throughout the Southwest.
