Graduate Student Representatives

Following are the graduate student representatives for the 2014-15 academic year:

Matthew Cordes
Aaron Berkowitz
Matt Garcia
Jordan Tirrell

Mathematics Graduate Student Council


Declaration of Purpose

We, the mathematics graduate students, recognize ourselves as an important part of the mathematics department at Brandeis University: as students, as instructors, as mathematicians. To facilitate communication within the department and with the rest of Brandeis community, and to make it easier to get things done, we have elected four representatives.

Members of the Mathematics Department Graduate Student Council advocate on our behalf, work on keeping our department friendly and conducive to our professional development and organize events contributing to the professional and cultural life of the department.

While the particular implementation of these goals is left up to our representatives, the following should be organized every year:

Graduate Student Seminar

The seminar is a place where one can present one's mathematical interests to the rest of the graduate students. The department happily supports this enterprise and typically is willing to provide funds for refreshments, thus strengthening the important math-food connection.

Welcome Incoming Students

To make the transition into graduate school easier, it is important to engage the incoming students in dialogue about our department, answer their questions and in general orient them to the Brandeis ways. It also helps to get them together to get to know each other and to discuss things like study groups.

Elections

Elections for next year's representatives are held in the spring. All current graduate students that will be around next year can run, and all current math graduate students are eligible to vote.

Several math instructor positions are available each year in the Brandeis Summer School. For the sake of fairness, the positions are assigned using the Summer Teaching Rules.
