Our GSPIA student ambassadors are happy to share with you their student life and personal learning experiences about GSPIA and Pittsburgh.  Feel free to email an ambassador with your questions.   Our Student Ambassadors are excited to discuss life in GSPIA, courses, student body, and extracurricular activities. What is Pittsburgh like, where are the best places to live… questions our ambassadors are happy to answer.    

Please contact for general admissions questions (re: when will I hear if I have been accepted, scholarship notification, do I need to take the GRE or TOEFL?)

Sydney Bacha

My name is Sydney Bacha and I am a first year Master of Public Administration student. My focus within the MPA is Urban Affairs and Planning and I am also pursuing a minor in Civil Security and Disaster Management. My interests are in the fields of Public Safety and Emergency Management. Also at GSPIA, I work for the Career Services department located in the Student Services office. I attended the University of Pittsburgh for my undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Administration of Justice. My love for the campus and the endless opportunities and experiences GSPIA had to offer kept me around here for my graduate degree! Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have!!  To contact Sydney, click here
