SHORT DESCRIPTION SUMMARIZING POSITION FUNCTIONS

The OOW section announces the formation of a new Student Affairs Committee. The Committee will be chaired by the Student Representative to Council, Kim Pernell-Gallagher during the 2014-2015 year. Its purpose is to serve as a vehicle for addressing the interests of students and engaging them more fully in the life of the Section. The creation of this committee coincides with the transition to an elected student representative to the section council. By drawing on the ideas and energies of multiple graduate students, it is intended that the committee will generate proposals for new initiatives/activities while sustaining a greater critical mass of involvement than a lone student representative could. The members for 2014-2015 are: Curtis Chan (Harvard); Sarah Mosseri (University of Virginia); Hang Young Lee (Duke); Kim Pernell-Gallagher (Harvard — Chair); Laura Rogers (UC San Diego); Jessica Santana (Stanford); Ben Shostakovsky (UC Berkeley). Thank you to OOW Council Members Elizabeth Gorman and Adam Goldstein for chairing the Task Force, which put together the Student Affairs Committee.
