SESA

 

 

The Student and Education Support Association (SESA) is a non-profit organization registered in the State of Ohio and with the United States Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) private charity. 


Drs. Atmaram and Sushila Gawande formed SESA in 1992 with the goal of supporting students and education [specifically, where, how, why?]  SESA has played a vital role in developing GSG College.
