About GSO

The Graduate Student Organization (GSO) is the student government for all Steinhardt graduate students. GSO seeks to provide activities and services that assist students in their graduate and post-graduate work. All graduate students enrolled in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development are automatically members of the GSO.

Our Goals

  • To promote better communication among graduate students, faculty, and the administration.
  • To develop cultural, recreational, professional, and intellectual enrichment programs for graduate students.
  • To provide activities and services to assist students in their graduate and post-graduate work.
  • To strengthen the Steinhardt community and bridge the relationships between academic programs through diverse programs.
