The Student Academic Appointee Affairs Committee studies existing problems of SAAs and attempts to anticipate future problems and recommends improvements in policies concerning the role of SAAs, helping in the implementation of these changes.
- Establish collaborative working relationships with campus level administrators, especially the Dean of the Graduate School.
- Continue to advance priorities for improving the experience of SAAs laid out by the Task Force on Graduate Education, as well as those identified in the IUB 2030 strategic plan.
- Develop a working culture on the committee of open communication and active collaboration with an eye toward problem solving. The reestablishment of the SAAAC for the purpose of opening established lines of communication between SAAs, the faculty, and campus leadership was one of the Council’s key accomplishments last year, and it is essential that we not squander the potential of this resource to create positive change.
