Why are we updating the constitution? With the presence of the Union, the GSA’s roles and priorities moving forward will change, we wanted a document that could outline our changing role dynamics to the graduate student community. In addition our previous constitution was too broad and we have in the past come across a lot rules (or lack thereof) which limit our ability to advocate for students as well as our ability to finance and recognize student groups. Lastly, Dr. Espenshade’s (Dean of Biomedical Education) office has been tasked with creating a written and formal process for how student groups are recognized as part of the SOM accreditation review which are now outlined in this document!
Every Spring the JHUSOM GSA organizes a week of activities to show appreciation for graduate students and to recognize all that they contribute to the Johns Hopkins Community! Throughout GSA Week graduate students can find opportunities to socialize, unwind, network, and work on professional and personal development! Make sure you mark your calendars for the 2023 GSA Week! Your GSA Executives have been busy planning a week full of fun activities! We look forward to seeing and interacting with you all throughout the week!
Each month, the GSA will be recognizing two graduate students (PhD or MS) who have achieved excellence academically, or in the community!
Winners will receive a $25 gift card and will be featured right here on the GSA website!

Winners will be announced at the GSA general body meetings.
Nicole is a passionate graduate student conducting excellent research while simultaneously being proactive about giving back to the community. She is instrumental in the lab and has mentored several graduate rotation students. As a part of the BC DEI Committee, she works towards making the department a more equitable and inclusive environment for work and to do science. She has made a positive impact by coordinating with and volunteering at Henderson-Hopkins for their Food Distribution and Holiday Gift programs. An organizer within the JHU Grad Workers Union TRU-EU, Nicole advocated for the union by answering questions to help students make an informed decision.
As a second-year student, Scarlett is a co-author of two published papers and three more papers that are currently under review in Nature and Science Translational Medicine. Scarlett is also passionate about giving back to the community through volunteer work. She is actively engaged in the volunteering work at the local community, such as the second chance. She also volunteers at the university of Maryland hospital and recently went to south America and completed a community development project there.

The Graduate Coating Ceremony honors Ph.D. candidates who have passed their qualifying exams, transitioning from a Ph.D. student to a Ph.D. candidate. Each coat is embroidered with the student’s name and with a graduate student pin affixed, which represents the unity of each of the 16 Johns Hopkins University doctoral programs.
