The Gender Studies students have elected the following two students to serve as their representatives on the GSSC for the 2016-2017 academic year:
Undergraduate Representative: Arielle Sims, Junior, Gender Studies major
Graduate Representative: Colleen Mitchell, PhD student, Political Science.
The Gender Studies Steering Committee includes as part of its membership one undergraduate and one graduate student representative in a non-voting capacity. Because Steering Committee members work with the Gender Studies administration to develop the Program’s academic curriculum and programming, they welcome students’ input on their experiences within Gender Studies, as well as discussion of students’ academic needs and interests. The student representatives are elected by their peers and serve one-year terms. They attend all Steering Committee meetings and bring student views and concerns to its members. The student representatives are excused from those parts of the meetings involving discussion of individual students and faculty in the Program. Following Steering Committee meetings, the representatives report back to their fellow students, informing them of upcoming events and new initiatives within the Program
