The College of Education Student Association (COESA) promotes unity of program support
in the college and augments personal and professional development for graduate students.
COESA represents students in all policy-making activities affecting student interests
and provides students studying in the college an opportunity to engage in collegial
and social relationships with faculty, peers and experts in the field.
Students also have the opportunity to join the Higher Education Student Association or the Library and Information Science Student Association to enhance their educational and social experience while studying at Morgridge.
The Child Family and School Psychology Student Association (CFSPSA) is composed of CFSP students across cohorts as well as a faculty advisor that attends the majority of meetings. The association meets at least once a month to discuss issues relevant school psychology as a whole, as well as specifically to the CFSP program. The CFSPSA's tasks include: planning CFSP social events, helping to coordinate professional conference attendance, and brainstorming about how to best support CFSP students throughout the program. All CFSP students can attend the meetings and are encouraged to become involved in any way that they can. Typically through the student association, student mentors in the second and third year program are assigned to first year students. Further, each year there are opportunities to be elected as specific positions within the association (e.g. president, treasurer, social chair, representatives to NASP, representatives to COESA, representatives to GSAC, and a faculty liaison). Please view the CFSP portfolio at http://portfolio.du.edu/CFSPSA for more information.
The Higher Education Student Association (HESA) provides an educational, professional and social base for students interested in the field of higher education. Activities of the organization encourage and enhance all facets of graduate student growth and development and provide an opportunity to engage in collegial and social relationships with faculty, peers and experts in the field.
The mission of the Library and Information Science Student and Alumni Association (LISSAA) of the Morgridge College of Education is to provide a gateway to the professional world of librarianship. As a network of students and other information professionals dedicated to the success of all students in the Library and Information Science program (LIS), the association will complement classroom education by sponsoring professional development and leadership workshops, speakers and programs. LISSAA will provide a conduit for open communications among the student body, the library and information professionals, the LIS Department and the Morgridge College of Education.
The mission of this organization is to represent and to serve all graduate students at the University of Denver. This shall be accomplished by soliciting the views of graduate students and by representing those views in University-wide committees and Board of Trustees meetings. GSAC will continually strive towards creating a stimulating and nourishing environment for graduate students at the academic, social and philanthropic levels.
