Subject: Graduate Student Research Committee

Dear Directors of Graduate Study,

The CSBS Office of Research Administration has created a graduate student research committee and would like to have a graduate student representative from each of the departments in our college. This person may or may not be the SAC chair for your program.  The purpose of the committee is to open an interdisciplinary dialogue regarding graduate student research in the college. One of the first topics that we will discuss is the implementation of a graduate student component, such as break out paper sessions or roundtables, at the current CSBS Research Day event that is held each year. We have had graduate students approach our office with an interest in creating various types of networking opportunities within the college. While we feel it is important for activity to be chaneled through mentors and advisors, this formalized committee will provide graduate students with an opportunity to present ideas that can then be passed through appropriate channels.

I would appreciate if you could please help me to make contact with at least one graduate student in your department who would be willing to entertain a preliminary meeting in order to discuss future possibilities.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you,


Daniel Poole
