The Graduate School of Education Student Government (GSESG) is the student government organization of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania.

GSESG is a voice for the GSE student body and acts as a liaison with the administration, faculty, and alumni. We are committed to being a source of information, guidance, and service to students. The Student Government is also committed to being open to and supportive of the diversity of GSE’s students and to developing a sense of community among GSE constituents.
