Graduate Student Representatives 2019-20
The Graduate Student Representatives are expected to:
- attend department meetings where they act as liaisons between graduate students and faculty, communicating the needs of the graduate students to faculty members and participating in departmental decisions, including decisions about the graduate curriculum, on behalf of the graduate students.
- serve on the Appointments Committee where they play a role in the hiring choices of the department.
- solicit volunteers for departmental committees that require graduate student members, including the committee responsible for organizing the annual Princeton-Rutgers Graduate Philosophy Conference.
- assist in the recruitment of prospective graduate students, including initial communication about visits and arranging appointments and lodging.
- welcome incoming graduate students by answering any questions they may have about the program, organizing orientation activities, and pairing them with older students in their areas of interest.
- Perform other responsibilities as required.
