about sps

The Student Perspectives Series (SPS) is an initiative that began in the 2016-17 academic year. Through this program the Liaison to the Board of Trustees works with a small team to solicit feedback on issues facing the graduate community. The team meets quarterly with members of the board to discuss student feedback, peer institution research, and any feasible proposals that arise out of the conversation.
