GAPSA: Graduate Association of Professionals in Student Affairs


The Graduate Association for Professionals in Student Affairs at the University of Louisville is a student organization for Masters and Doctoral students interested in pursuing a career in Higher Education.

GAPSA was chartered in the spring of 1991 by a group of College Student Personnel students. It was originally envisioned as a way to bring CSP students together for networking, educational and developmental programming and social activities. GAPSA offers services to members by providing informational resources, and serves as an outlet to voice student concerns and suggestions.
