Graduate Student Organization 2019

WELCOME!

Dear College of Education Faculty and Students,

Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year!

We are excited to introduce ourselves as this year’s Graduate Student Organization (GSO) executive board. The team includes Alisha Butler, president, Lydia Ahn, vice president, Dawn Culpepper, secretary-treasurer, and Judy Foster, the GSO’s faculty advisor. Each department has two representatives: Ana Ross and Sun Tran (CHSE), Tessa Johnson and Monica Morell (HDQM), and Rose Cherussery and Nicole Ryan (TLPL).

This year, the GSO has three objectives: 1) to build community among graduate students and faculty across all departments in the College of Education, 2) to provide professional development and networking opportunities for graduate students, and 3) to use our organization to bring a critical and self-reflective perspective to our work in education.

We look forward to seeing new and returning graduate students as well as faculty at our first event of the year, the Graduate Student Welcome Fair, on Wednesday, August 21 from 3:00-5:00 PM. The Welcome Fair will include introductory remarks from Dean Jennifer King Rice and the chairs of each department. We invite new and returning students to learn about resources both within the College of Education and the university. We’ll cap off the day with an ice cream social to celebrate the start of the new year.

This year, we will host a variety of social and professional events, including our annual Student Research Symposium. We invite students and faculty to join us throughout the school year. Please feel free to reach out to any of us if you have questions or ideas to support graduate students in the college!

Sincerely,

Alisha Butler, TLPL, President
