|Graduate Guide --> V. STUDENT REPRESENTATION/PARTICIPATION|
Each year three M.S. and three Ph.D. student representatives are elected by the graduate students of the Department. The representatives participate in policy making decisions and have full voting rights at faculty meetings of the Department except in cases of academic curriculum and personnel matters.
Students are encouraged to voice their opinions on current topics in meetings of the student body. Student representatives then bring these matters to the attention of the faculty. The Department also hosts regular town hall meetings with the students.
Weekly colloquiums keep students informed of current research activities and provide opportunities to present their own work.
