Aaron Tobiason

Aaron TobiasonFor the past two years, I have been a member of the Senate's Elections, Representation, and Governance Committee (ERG). During that time, I have had the opportunity to work with faculty, staff, and other students in reviewing changes to existing academic programs, as well as evaluating proposals for the creation of new units. I have also worked with the committee on a comprehensive overhaul of the University Senate's Bylaws, which provided invaluable insights into how the Senate functions and -- more importantly -- how the University Administration interacts with various groups around campus.

I have had the opportunity to work with a range of talented individuals drawn from the various constituencies served by the Senate, and their collective experience has helped me be a more effective advocate for graduate student concerns and a more informed and productive member of the University community.

tremendously value having seen this evolution, and having been able to play a small role in it.
