The GPSA internally elects its officers and voting representatives each spring. Graduate and professional students may also run for the Student-Elected Trustee position in even years.
All of the officers and voting representatives of the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly are elected by field representatives through an internal caucus system. Each graduate field and professional school is responsible for electing or appointing its own field representative(s), who serve on the assembly as non-voting members. The graduate and professional Student-Elected Trustee is elected in the spring of even years for a two-year term.
