There are openings for up to two students to serve on each of the Program’s Standing Committees except for those dealing with individual students or faculty issues: Admissions, First Year Advisory, Faculty Trainers, and Student Funding Committees. At least one student will serve on each Committee during each academic year. A call for nominations of Committee representatives will be sent by the Program Office to all students once per academic year, generally prior to the fall semester. In the event that no student is elected or volunteers to participate on a particular committee, it is the responsibility of the student representatives to name a student to serve.
In addition to the responsibilities defined by their respective Committees, student committee members also are responsible for forwarding copies of any Committee minutes to the student representatives on the Steering Committee within one week of each Standing Committee meeting. Additionally, student members also will notify all Program students of relevant meeting and event dates, proposed Program changes, and other matters of interest to students. This notification should occur within one week following the Committee meeting or two weeks before any such meeting, event or effective date of a proposed Program change, whichever is earlier.
