Dear Undergraduate Students Subcommittee,

Thank you for being willing to participate in the Undergraduate Students Subcommittee as part of your work with the President’s Commission on Women and Gender Equity.  In keeping with the charge of the Commission to provide the President with recommendations and reports, I ask that this subcommittee evaluate areas within the topic of undergraduate students and create a recommendation that can be submitted to the President by the Commission.  Recommendations can be targeted in a number of ways including a suggestion for the creation of a new program, resource provided for an existing program, alerting the President to an issue and expressing Commission support for the creation of a solution, etc.

Prior to beginning your work on specific recommendations, please brainstorm a list of possible topics the Undergraduate Student Subcommittee may be interested in exploring.  Once your list is compiled, please report back to the full Commission during an upcoming meeting.

As you being your work, remember that we have Rachael, our graduate student hourly, available to help you research the areas of interest you pursue.  Please feel free to email her with requests for her assistance.  In order to help monitor her work load, please also copy Katie to your requests so that we can make sure we’re not overloading Rachael.

I am excited to see what recommendations you’ll bring back to the table.  While the work is being done in subcommittees, we all wills till be there to support and assist each other.


Sue James, Chair
