Grad Student Members Needed for the GSLI Committee

We’re currently seeking two new student members for the GSLI at either the Master’s level or Ph.D. level. We need one person from the Humanities and one from the Sciences, and one of the two new members should be an international student who speaks English as a second or additional language. If you’re interested in services for grad students, or you’re thinking about a career in academia and would like some committee experience with a group that’s friendly, informal, and most importantly functional, then please consider joining us – we meet about three times each semester. You must be available to attend at least two of these fall meetings: Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 10am; Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 2:30pm; and Tuesday, Dec. 1 at 9:30am. Email and be sure to include your level and department.
