The GPSA Assembly holds four meetings a month, only one is required for assembly members to attend, which is held on the third Friday of the month from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. On the first Friday of each month from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm , we hold a Town Hall event that is open to all graduate students to share their experiences with GPSA leadership and to hear about what has been going on in GPSA. Every second Friday of the month from 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm we hold a Legislative Review session for GPSA officers to discuss upcoming legislation, make amendments, and get feedback from other students. Official Assembly Meetings, where voting takes place, are held on the third Friday of the month from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm and are open for any student to attend. On the last Friday of the month, there is a potluck for networking and community building. Please check Sun Devil Sync and/or our calendar for more information about upcoming events.

Our Town Hall events are meant to increase communication between GPSA officers and our constituents so as to better advocate on behalf of all graduate students. They switch every month between in-person (in SP 321) and on Zoom (links.asu.edu/townhallGPSA). Below is the schedule with the topics of focus.

The Advocacy Agenda enumerates and outlines the official stance of Arizona State Universities Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) for the academic year. The Advocacy Agenda is the exclusive representation of the policy positions of GPSA. The Advocacy Agenda comprises two distinct and complementary parts: Guiding principles and Policy positions. Together, these elements demonstrate GPSA’s foundational ideals in alignment with GPSA, ASASU, ASU’s larger mission and charter, and GPSA’s unwavering commitment to moving from concept to action. This document is produced by the Office of External Affairs.
Every year, the Office of the President produces an Annual Report. You can read these documents below:
Every year, GPSA is required by our bylaws to conduct an assessment of worker rights for graduate students. “The GPSA President in conjunction with the GPSA Assembly President will conduct an annual assessment of worker rights and request information on the living wage.” This is of utmost importance because we are not only students, but also workers at the university. If labor issues are important to you, please also consider joining United Campus Workers AZ, which is our wall-to-wall union for all students, staff, and faculty at ASU. Below, you can find our most recent assessments:
Any student can submit legislation that will be considered by the GPSA Assembly and voted on at our monthly Assembly Meetings. Legislation is due at 11:59 PM (Arizona time), on the first day of every month. Please use the Legislation Submission Form to submit! On the form you can find links to the Assembly Bill and Assembly Resolution templates.
