The EGSA, a student group officially acknowledged by the University, includes all graduate students in the English Department at Northeastern, but primarily functions as a small group of elected representatives. Its mission is to ensure and improve the quality of the graduate programs, promote the professional development of graduate students, develop policies and procedures that benefit graduate students, encourage faculty-student communication, and foster collegiality among members of the department through cooperation between graduate students, faculty and staff in the English Department.
Elected representatives conduct monthly meetings, open to any and all graduate students, where announcements and reports are made by various subcommittees such as the Conference Planning Committee, the Job Market Research Committee, and the Event Coordinating Committee, as well as the Ph.D. and M.A. representatives. The EGSA also works in conjunction with the Graduate Student Government (GSG), the graduate student government that includes all departments at Northeastern. For more information, please contact the EGSA at northeasternEGSA@gmail.com or Eamon Schlotterback at firstname.lastname@example.org.
