SCOR 2015-16 Executive Board: Call for Applications

Greetings SCOR Members,

It has been my great pleasure to serve as your SCOR President this year! We have had numerous events and activities to build community among graduate students of color. I hope that you have enjoyed our monthly socials, critical conversations about police brutality with the Black Student Union and Central Student government, public forum with the university regents along with the Rackham Student Government, viewing the movie, Dear White People, followed by a much needed discussion, and meeting several university guests including Alice Walker and Marc Lamont Hill. I'm extremely thankful for the opportunity to lead you all for this year, and cannot wait to celebrate the culmination of our activities at this year's SCOR Symposium and Formal Gala (please retrieve your tickets here: SCOR 25th Symposium 2015).

The time has come for our current executive board to pass the torch to another group of excited, passionate, engaged scholars, and we would like to invite all of you to consider applying for a position on the executive board for the 2015-2016 academic year! Serving on our board provides a great opportunity to develop your leadership, team-building, communication, and facilitation skills (in addition to meeting some great individuals across campus and shaping the education experiences of graduate students at UM!). It would be our honor if you would complete our short application for a position (click here). Please apply by Saturday, April 4, 2015.

We have compiled a list of our current position descriptions (subject to modification) and qualities that we believe will be necessary to carry out the duties of the position. If you did not receive an e-mail from us and you are interested, please e-mail us at scor-eboard@umich.edu.  We will send you a copy of the current position descriptions. Please review these carefully as you make your decision to apply.

If you have any questions, please contact us at scor-eboard@umich.edu. We look forward to hearing from you, and hope that you will apply!

Have a great week and Go Blue!
