English Graduate Student Association
Welcome from your 2010-2011 EGSA Board: Tammy Bruch, Charlie Guy-McAlpin, Justin Hessberg, and Courtney Wooten.
The EGSA works to build a community of English graduate students at UNCG and advocates on behalf of that community within the English department. We facilitate communication between the graduate student body and their elected representatives on the department's graduate studies committee. We strive to improve the academic, professional, and personal experience of all graduate students by working to identify and voice their needs.
We help support a community of English graduate students through mentoring programs, professional development activities, and leadership opportunities. Through an ongoing conversation among the department's administration and students, we hope to effect positive change and growth in the graduate studies program.
To read more about the EGSA, check out our 2010-2011 handbook. The EGSA handbook focuses on two areas of concern: the organization, policies, and procedures of the EGSA, followed by sections concerning living and working as a graduate student at UNCG.
The organizational section should be understood as a descriptive document rather than a set of bylaws, articles of incorporation, or rules of any kind. The handbook is revised each summer to represent practices from the previous and intentions for the upcoming academic year.
The EGSA seeks to be pragmatic and flexible in pursuing its duel objectives of building community and facilitating advocacy. The association's character and actions are determined by each year's members.
