» Student Leadership Council
The WaterCAMPWS has established the Student Leadership Council (SLC) with the primary goal of providing a voice between students and administration. Both graduate and undergraduate representatives from the main centers that comprise The WaterCAMPWS participate in the SLC. The SLC contains social and supportive components that allow students to enhance their research experiences and further their career aspirations. Specifically, the Student Leadership Council offers: opportunities for travel grants, professional development workshops, lectures from leading researchers, and mentoring programs.The SLC Executive Committee is comprised of graduate students nominated by The WaterCAMPWS administration. Members of the Executive Committee share the responsibility of chairing SLC meetings, recording minutes, and other duties as necessary. You can contact the Committe by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org . The students serving on the 2009-2010 SLC Executive Committee are:
Theresa Vonder Haar-Executive Chair
Ana Martinez-Financial Chair
Jong Kwon Choe-Communications Chair
