AICER is inviting students and faculty to attend Dr. Christon Arthur’s presentation on September 3, 2013 at 5: 30 in Buller Hall, Student Lounge. 

His  presentation is entitled , “Graduate Students’ Advocacy, ”  and the abstract follows:

Advocacy may be defined as the act or process of supporting or promoting a cause. Therefore, in the context of graduate education, advocacy may be defined as the act of supporting or promoting the cause of graduate students. In its truest form, graduate education is a collaborative experience between a student and the faculty. By its very nature, this collaborative experience creates a power differential between student and faculty – the faculty is powerful and the graduate student is powerless. The faculty is the expert and the graduate student is the novice. The faculty has the institutional culture on their side the student has to learn that culture. How does a graduate student navigate this landscape? Is advocacy a legitimate expectation of the graduate student? Who is responsible for advocating for graduate students? Where do graduate students go for conflict resolution? This AICER Symposium attempts to address these pressing issues. Participants are encouraged to bring real-life challenges faced by graduate students to the discussion.
