PhD Student Advisory Committee

As we wrote in our last post: Only courageous talk and earnest listening–followed by proactive, systemic change enacted by men and all other genders–will dislodge the cultural norms that allow nearly 3/5 of women scientists to be sexually harassed and allow gender harassment to permeate our culture, on campus and off.

Toward that end: the new PhD Student Advisory Committee, convened by Vice Provost for Graduate and Professional Education Nancy Kass. Mentorship, inclusivity, and grad student well-being were key topics discussed at their first meeting, held at the end of November. From the Hub: “We get these amazing students, and we want them to be productive, and happy, and feel good about what they’re doing, and then be prepared to do really wonderful things afterwards,” Kass says.
