The History Graduate Student Organization functions as an academic and social communication link between faculty and students. It also identifies members for several representative bodies in the universitywide Graduate Student Advisory Committee, its subcommittees, and certain councils of the Faculty Senate.
A graduate student selected by the HGSO represents that body on the Department of History Graduate Studies Committee and participates in developing general curricular and other policy for the departments graduate programs. The HGSO also selects a member to attend general faculty meetings in the department.
The HGSO encourages graduate students to become active in the organization as well as identify themselves for possible council and committee work in the department and the university. Such activities can be strong assets in your professional resume and excellent experience for future professional life in the academy.
