Campus-wide Committees Representatives

Serve on campus­wide committees. At the beginning of their term, they solicit feedback from postdocs about their committee’s issues through formal (ie. surveys) or informal (Open Forum feedback) mechanisms. Throughout the year, attend meetings of their respective committee.  Once a year, share updates at Open Forum about committee business and how it pertains to postdocs.
