Underclassmen are encouraged to consider becoming student liaisons.
Each year the English Department has two student liaisons who are senior English majors. Working closely with faculty, the liaisons are involved in planning events, including the weekly Open Book series where faculty are invited to share research as well as favorite pieces of literature. Student liaisons also participate in faculty recruitment, meeting candidates, and providing vital feedback to search committees. Student liaisons attend general department faculty meetings to offer the student perspective.
