Krannert Graduate Student Association (KGSA)



The mission of KGSA is to improve the student experience by fostering professional development, leveraging diversity, and building relationships built on trust, humility, respect and a commitment to excellence.

KGSA is the governing body of Krannert’s student clubs and is responsible for representing the interests of the entire student body with a simple mission: Enhance the Krannert Experience.  KGSA directly oversees the planning and implementation of student activities, programs, and processes designed to add value to your experience as a student at Krannert.  This governing body provides an excellent leadership opportunity, as it is a comprehensive organization that initiates institutional change, manages resource allocation, and addresses the needs of hundreds of students.
