Graduate Association of School Psychologists
GASP is the Graduate Association of School Psychology, and its purpose is to facilitate professional development and fellowship for graduate students in school psychology. GASP strives to pursue community outreach programs specifically related to school psychology and to encourage academic excellence. Baylor currently has GASP programs on both the Dallas and Waco campus, and together they collaborate and work to achieve these goals. GASP holds meetings once a month and participates in at least one community service and one professional development event once a semester. Both EdS and PhD students participate!
GASP students enjoy volunteering at local events for the special needs community. In Waco, GASP students help with the Treats-to-Trunk event each October, a drive-through, sensory-friendly trick-or-treating event. Baylor students get to don their Halloween costumes and hand out candy to the children in attendance.
GASP members attend the anual conference for the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) and often earn the distinction of giving research presentations. Graduate students attend with their respective cohorts and then meet Baylor alumni and other school psychologists from all across the country.
