CTL Graduate Student Advisory Committee

The Center for Teaching and Learning is pleased to announce the formation of a new Graduate Student Advisory Committee, launching in Fall 2023. Guided by CTL staff, this committee will have two broad purposes: to engage a range of diverse student communities across the Columbia campus and, in so doing, to obtain community-centered input and advice on graduate student teaching support needs, CTL offerings, and effective modes of outreach. 

We encourage current graduate students who are committed to drawing on diverse perspectives, experiences, and communities across the Columbia campus to apply. Applicants do not need to have been a regular attendee of CTL programs to qualify for this role. Committee activity details are at the bottom of this page.

How to apply

Applications for a one year (renewable) appointment to the 2023-24 Committee were accepted through September 2023. For questions about future application cycles or other aspects of the Graduate Student Advisory Committee, contact CTLgrads@columbia.edu.
