Student Perspectives Series

The Student Perspectives Series (SPS) is an initiative that began in the 2016-17 academic year as a venue for students to work with members of the UChicago Board of Trustees on issues related to graduate student life and experience. Through this program the Graduate 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 actionable next steps for improving the student experience at UChicago.
