GPSA strives to identify, promote, and support interests and concerns that are important to the welfare and academic development of graduate/professional students at UNM.
The GPSA has been the recognized Graduate and Professional Student Government at the University of New Mexico since 1969. We strive to represent students on issues ranging from research grants to health insurance to academic freedom. GPSA stays involved on campus by sending representatives to numerous university boards, university and faculty senate committees, and the UNM Board of Regents. GPSA actively lobbies the New Mexico State Legislature for graduate and professional student interests. We also try to meet individual student needs, whether by providing access to our computer lab in SUB 1021, or by funding student research or travel through GPSA grants.
