The GPSA Office of Professional Development (PD) recognizes graduate student achievement in teaching, research, advocacy, and mentorship. It also recognizes ASU faculty and staff who extensively support and contribute to the graduate community. Please click on each award below for more information. The Teaching Excellence Award (TEA) and the Research Award are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters; while the rest are only in the Spring. If you would like to be part of the Awards process in the role of a Reviewer, please email us at gpsa.awards@gmail.com.
We accept Reviewers all year round. Please click below for Reviewers serving 2018-2019. In addition to awards, we organize several large events, on and off campus, for graduate students to socialize and enjoy a fun break from their work. Please see the GPSA calendar for event dates. The Professional Development Committee is led by the Vice President of Professional Development, Director of Awards, and Director of Events, and is open for any graduate student to join.
