Student Organizations


Student organizations are a major aspect of student life here at HGSE. Each year, there are over 30 officially recognized student organizations. Organizations range in focus from international issues (such as Education in the Middle East and North Africa) to affinity groups (the Black Student Union) to being program based (Education Policy and Management Student Association).

We welcome and support your interest in starting your own organization. There are a few very simple steps involved in becoming a recognized organization. The Office of Student Affairs provides the necessary information and training to help your organization through the recognition process, and provides counsel on events and organizational effectiveness. This online student organization management system will make managing all aspects of your organization hassle-free. Examples of some events that student organizations sponsored last year include research conferences, panel discussions, film series, community service projects, noted speakers, and much more. The range of events is as limitless as the range of imagination amongst you, the HGSE student body.
