Happy July, and welcome to FY16! I am honored to be the Graduate Member Coordinator for this year, and my primary goal is to connect more with our existing graduate member base (you all!) as well as to attract more graduate students to the Grad Community and SWE as a whole.

If you ever have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do feel free to contact me at grad-coordinator@swe.org or Liz at grad-coordinator-elect@swe.org.

We wanted to share some updates with you to start off the year. I hope to send regular email updates at least once a month with upcoming events relevant to graduate students and updates from the Grad Community. Be sure to follow the Facebook page and blog for up-to-date information!
