The Graduate Student Association's (GSA) mission is to promote community among GSBS students and to advance the GSBS identity within the biomedical community while providing a student forum for discussion of common needs; working cooperatively with the faculty and administration to build a recognized and respected institution; and to develop student fellowship by coordinating social activities.

The GSA plays an integral role in the operation of the GSBS, and functions as the official organization representing the student body.
