BGSA Student Leadership

Executive Board
Each year, the BGSA general assembly elects an executive board that holds its own monthly meetings, conducts BGSA operations, and represents BGS students in Penn's university-wide Graduate and Professional Student Association (GAPSA). Click the links to see your current board members.

 

Group Representatives
Each of the graduate groups within BGS elects a representative who manages designated BGSA funds and ensures that students within his or her graduate group are represented fairly at BGSA general assembly meetings. Please contact your graduate group representative with concerns about funding of events specific to your program. Click the links to see your current program representatives.
