The Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA) of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, shall assist graduate and professional students with support for their academic endeavors, advocate on their behalf, and inculcate a sense of camaraderie. Providing an environment conducive to student scholarship and research is the primary goal of the GPSA. The GPSA strives to engender a sense of community among graduate and professional students by furnishing financial support and fellowship.
The GPSA Council consists of 47 seats for representatives from each academic department and an unlimited number of non-voting seats for members-at-large (no department affiliation) during the fall and spring semesters. The Council convenes regularly, typically the first Thursday of each month. The Council is advised by the elected Executive Board, the GPSA standing and ad hoc committees, the GPSA Manager and Advisor, and a UNLV Faculty Advisor, the Graduate College Dean. During the summer, the Council is abbreviated to a Summer Sessional with at least one representative from each College or School at UNLV (as opposed to each department).
