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.
Michelle Sullivan Govani, 2018-19 President
I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in Biology and Society. I joined GPSA over 3 years ago in search of a sense of belonging at ASU, and I stayed for the inspiring, fun community of graduate students who are passionate about advocacy and service. When I'm not working on my research or GPSA, you can find me at the yoga/barre studio, training agility with my dog, cooking with my husband, or opening and closing doors for my cat.
