Hi everyone!

TLDR: Apply to be on P-GraSC by May 9th (next Thursday)!

P-GraSC is now accepting applications for 2019-2020!

What is P-GraSC, you ask? The PCC Graduate Student Steering Committee (P-GraSC; https://pcc.uw.edu/people/graduate-student-steering-committee/) is a group of ~15 PCC grad students from a diverse group of departments (if you're getting this email, you definitely count as a PCC grad student!). The committee formed three years ago in response to feedback from the June 2016 "All-Hands" meeting, which identified the need for a more organized grad student steering body within the PCC.

Each year, half the committee will rotate out, to be replaced by new members - namely, YOU! We are currently seeking nominations (for yourself or others) to begin a 2-year position on P-GraSC starting this summer (if you have less than 2 years left and want to get involved, nominate yourself anyhow! 1 year placements are perfectly fine). The committee meets once per quarter, with sub-committees potentially meeting more often if you're working on something specific.

This can be as much or as little work as you'd like it to be: this year, PGraSC activities included organizing Climate Science on Tap: Schooner Series events, Graduate Student Seminars, and the Spring Symposium.

We encourage applications from all PCC departments, with a particular emphasis on ensuring a diversity of disciplines/perspectives. The goal is to have no more than a few people from the same department on the committee together at any given time.

Please send your nominations (name of nominee + a few sentences on why interested) to Sarah Ragen <sragen at uw.edu> by noon on Thursday, May 9th!

The current committee will select new members (with the goal of maintaining a diverse representation of PCC departments) at their spring meeting, which all PCC grad students are welcome to attend (time and location TBA).

Please consider nominating yourself or your PCC friends for this super fun, super chill committee! If you'd like more information, you can contact any of us current committee members (names and departments listed below). Thanks in advance for your nominations!
