What Do We Do?:

  1. Act as a facilitator group to increase communication between various departments and student group in the school of music and dance; facilitate performances between music and dance communities and help with logistics;
  2. Address student concerns/complaints and send them through the proper channels;
  3. Provide students with a safe and optionally anonymous platform to have their concerns heard.

We are not able to address any issues that fall under Title IX or relate to Graduate Employee working conditions. For that please contact the Dean of Students Office or read about Title IX here.
