Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week (GPSAW) is a week-long celebration of the value and impact of graduate and professional students. First held in 1993, GPSAW was developed by the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students. GPSAW is now recognized nationally during the first week of April. It was celebrated for the first time at the University of Redlands in 2022. In 2023, it will be observed Monday, April 3rd through Friday, April 7th.
A School of Education student will be randomly selected to receive a $25 electronic gift card every day of the week! Students will be notified via their Redlands email and given the opportunity to select a gift card from a list of stores and restaurants. All current School of Education students are automatically entered in the drawing.
In celebration of GPSAW, the School of Education community is invited to attend the following virtual and in-person events. Please follow us on Instagram (@gsa_soe) to stay updated throughout the week!
