Graduate Student Association

Aaron Shaw, GSA President
The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is an organization that strives to voice the concerns of graduate students, representing approximately 5,000 graduate students at the University of Toledo (UT), while also sponsoring numerous graduate programs and providing funding to subsidize travel to conferences and symposiums. The GSA represents the diverse graduate student community by serving on numerous University wide committees and councils including the University Council and the Graduate Council. The GSA also organizes social events both on and off campus to help graduate students develop social and professional contacts across all of the University's colleges. Together, we maintain UT as a first rate institution for graduate education, across all fields of study working to improve the human condition.

Academic Integrity

Susan Pocotte, PhD. Associate Professor & Assoc. Dean, Academic Affairs, College of Graduate Studies
The assurance of integrity in graduate education and research is of paramount concern. Academic and scholarly activity at the graduate level takes many forms at the University of Toledo, including, but not limited to, classroom activity, laboratory or field experience, and artistic expression. The Graduate College at the University of Toledo upholds the highest ethical standards in its teaching, research, and service missions.

 Student Health Insurance

Tonya Tressler, Insurance Management Representative
Many students do not recognize the value of a good insurance plan because the majority of students are young, healthy, and living on a very tight budget. However, unforeseen health care expenses can easily disrupt a student’s college career. This presentation will provide information on the University’s health insurance policy which also includes the waiver criteria.
