Staff and Officers


Interim President: Jennifer Schechter
Office hours: Friday 10:00am – 12:00pm or by appointment

Notice: From August 23 on, Tanja Aho will be on an incapacity leave, hopefully for only a short period of time. GSA informed everyone about the circumstances at the September Senate meeting, and the Senate decided to vote-in an interim president. Until the time she can resume her duties, Tanja is no longer officially on staff or payroll and is not allowed to represent GSA in any official capacity. She deeply regrets this logistical hiccup and hopes to return in full force to her position soon.
