October 2019 General Meeting Recap

Our October general meeting centered on how to best organize and implement an iSchool student survey to find out what our students need most from GSAC. We discussed the possibility of forming cohorts based on location or MLIS program specializations. Members in attendance also brought up interesting ideas for our blog, including spotlighting student internships or final projects. If you are interested in contributing to our blog about your MLIS culminating experience, or if you have another idea for a blog post, please reach out to Mallory at mmccork1@kent.edu, or Haley at hshaw9@kent.edu. In addition, we talked about our upcoming event, a discussion with KSU iSchool alumna Erin Fleak about the value of professional organizations in career development. This virtual event will take place on Monday, November 4 at 7:00PM EST via Zoom. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to mmccork1@kent.edu. We hope to see you there! Also, if you would like to attend our next general meeting in November, please feel free to contact Haley at hshaw9@kent.edu. The more, the merrier!

September 2019 General Meeting Recap

During our general meeting for September, GSAC elected a new Vice President of Student Outreach, Lauren Zollinger. We discussed options for social media groups to extend our conversations beyond class discussions and GSAC meetings. If you have any suggestions to increase our social media presence or response, please reach out to us (mmccork1@kent.edu or hshaw9@kent.edu)! We also are in the process of arranging committees. Contact us if you are interested in serving on a committee and gaining experience with a student organization! Committees will help generate content for our blog, organize events, and reach out to connect students with each other, faculty, and administration. Stay tuned for information about our next meeting!
