Meeting of November 10th

If you couldn’t make it to this week’s SUGSE meeting, here is a brief run-through of what you missed: We discussed how SUGSE will anticipate the Diversity Action Plan, expand and embolden its social media presence, and work to better understand the challenges faced by students in a wide range of disciplines.

Stand Up For Graduate Student Employees (SUGSE)

Play ‘The Game of (Grad Student) LIFE’ on the Main Green (3/16-3/18)

This week we will be bringing back the amazing SUGS booth!

Except this time it will be outfitted for passersby to play a short game of GRAD LIFE. SUGS has retooled this classic game to highlight issues that affect the lives and careers of graduate students at Brown. Will you get top marks in your coursework? Get into an amazing summer research program, but need to come up with the funds to support yourself? Maybe things have been going great, but you decide to start a family and realize there isn’t easily accessible childcare and that maternity leave isn’t nearly as robust as you’d hoped…

Come play a short round and see how your GRAD LIFE turns out and also get some tips on how you can advocate for a different outcome if things don’t go as well as you’d planned!

Brush-In For Dental Care!

Bring Your Toothbrush and Brush Your Teeth for Dental Care!
Join Us for a BrushIn
Wednesday, February 18 from 12:30 – 1:00
in front of University Hall on the Main Green
The University Resources Committee voted against proposals to provide Brown graduate students with dentalinsurance. Let’s show the administration what our current dental plan looks like.
Join SUGS in our first BrushIn this Wednesday, where we will brush our teeth in protest on the Main Green in front of University Hall. Come out, make some noise, and polish those pearlies to remind the administration that Healthy Grad Students Make Brown Work!
