English Department Graduate Student Forum
Dear English Graduate Students,
Please plan on attending the first Graduate Student Forum (Grad Forum) from 4-5 p.m. Friday, August 25, in STV 401A. At this meeting, we will discuss professional development opportunities in the Department, including serving on committees. Committee work is an important way to participate in Departmental governance, gives graduate students representation and agency when assessing revising important policy and procedure, and looks impressive on your CV. I will provide you with details on the duties for each Department committee, and I will take self-nominations and nominations for others. By the end of the meeting, I hope to have an election ballot ready for voting the following week. If you cannot make it to this meeting but would like to be on the ballot to be elected to a Department committee, please email me and Sherrie (firstname.lastname@example.org) off-list.
Following the forum, we will go to Lunker’s for refreshments (104 South Linden Street, Normal)
