Graduate Council

A photo from our first virtual Grad Council meeting.

The GETSEA Graduate Student Advisory Council represents graduate students at all eight GETSEA member institutions, and helps steer the course of GETSEA in helping to enhance graduate training in Southeast Asian studies. Council members serve on the working committees of GETSEA with members of the steering committee, and they provide direct feedback on key programming that GETSEA is undertaking. Graduate Council members have played key roles in the establishment of GETSEA’s social media channels, the robust needs assessment survey, and mini-course selection.

GETSEA solicits annual applications to serve on the Graduate Council, and offers Council members a stipend to support their work.
