Graduate Student Council


 Desa Karye Daniel, GSC Chair

Greetings Fellow Graduate Students,

It is my esteemed pleasure to welcome you to the AERA (American Educational Research Association) Graduate Student Council (GSC). I am honored and humbled to serve as your 2019-2020 Chair of the AERA GSC.

The mission and goal of the AERA GSC are to facilitate, promote, develop, and support emerging scholars as they transition from graduate students to professional scholars. The AERA GSC is committed to (1) helping graduate students navigate the obstacles, challenges, and unknowns; (2) celebrating students’ successes and rewards; and (3) supporting and expanding the networks of our academic lives.

As your chair, I am committed to leading our organization with transparency and vulnerability. To catalyze our success as students, I also hope to offer more student involvement throughout AERA, provide open access to information, support our graduate student division leadership, and continue to grow our student support network with horizontal and vertical mentorship. I aim to create an environment where we as students can support each other and hold our organization accountable while expanding the graduate student council towards new opportunities.
