Graduate Student Committees

Do you have any ideas or suggestions to make things better? Well here’s your opportunity to voice those ideas, and make a difference in your education.

The School of Social Work is currently recruiting “Student Representatives” to a number of School & University Committees

The time required for these committees is small, but the benefits are great!

Taking part in a School or University Committee is a great way to influence future policy and course curriculum.  It also looks great on a resume!

For more information on these committees, or to sign up as a “Student Representative”

Visit the School of Social Work Office in Kenneth Taylor Hall (KTH),  Room 319  or contact:

Ann Fudge Schormans – Kenneth Taylor Hall (KTH),  Room 309A, ext. 23790
