Student Cabinet

Enhance your professional development, network, and promote intellectually stimulating activities outside of the classroom.

The GSPIA Student Cabinet, elected each December for a one-year term that begins the following January, manages a substantial budget, organizes events, and meets regularly with the dean to provide feedback on the school’s functioning and discuss new initiatives. Through consultation with students and faculty, the cabinet is dedicated to serving the interests of the public and international affairs student body.
