Get more involved with SWE as a graduate student!

The Graduate Leadership Team (consisting of the Graduate Member Coordinator, the Graduate Programming Coordinator, and their coordinator-elects) is looking for new coordinators for FY16, starting in July 2015!  This is a great opportunity for grad students to get involved in the SWE Grad Community! The three positions are:

Graduate Member Coordinator-Elect (GMC-Elect): Supports the Graduate Member Coordinator in working to foster a strong community and network for graduate students in SWE by facilitating communication between graduate students in SWE and SWE graduate student groups, and by representing the interests of graduate students to the Society. The GMC-Elect assists the GMC, in preparation for assuming the GMC role the following year (a 2 year commitment).

Regional Conference Coordinator (RCC): Coordinates with regional graduate student representatives, or any contact person for each region, to ensure there is graduate programming at the region conference and to gather feedback to improve them. Involves working with the region contact to develop and submit session abstracts, establish presentations for accepted sessions, and checking in with the region contact to ensure the graduate student sessions go smoothly.

Webinars Coordinator (WC): Assist in coordinating the webinars hosted by the Graduate SWE community, by selecting topics, inviting speakers, and coordinating logistics with SWE headquarters to ensure webinars are advertised and routinely presented.


The applications are due by April 1, 2015.

GMC-Elect application:

RCC and WC application:

Note that the GMC-Elect position requires the SWE HQ Committee Chair application. The RCC and WC application includes an area where you indicate whether or not you submitted the GMC-Elect application and allows you to rank your preferences. Both applications require similar information and responses, but please make sure to follow the directions!


Applicants will be notified within the week after the deadline if there any additional questions and to schedule a phone interview. If you have any questions, please contact Katharine at
