I serve on several committees at Princeton. Serving the greater graduate student community allows for establishment of institutional processes and a way to improve transparency. The committees I have served on have made substantive changes to all aspects of grad school including the curriculum, housing, student wellbeing, health care, and diversity and inclusion. Improving institutional systems is a way to improve equity and the experience for students after me.
