Each class of graduate students elects a representative to the Department’s Graduate Student Council with the fifth year representative serving as chair. They meet monthly with the chair of the Graduate Committee in order to advocate on behalf of the students and to give students a chance to shape departmental policy. The Grad Council hosts a yearly town-hall meeting to give students the opportunity to voice their opinions on the state of the department. In addition, they participate in activities from interviewing new faculty hires to attending faculty meetings.
