PGR Plenum - the PGR voice...
We intend to build a new PGR Plenum*, run, organised and led by yourselves. Within this structure we would like to see a better representation of the PGR voice; supporting all of you with a voice into committees; for example in my last University we managed to raise and help address Graduate Teaching issues, supervision numbers and funding for Research Development; but obviously it would be representing your PGR needs now and moving forward.
I think that it would be useful also to develop interest groups, that then report back to the PGR Plenum, that focus on specific areas such as PhD Parents/ Carers, BAME, LGBTiQAP, Overseas, Disability . These groups would be there to support each other particularly, but also act as advisors to the Doctoral College team.
My image would be that this is a formal elected committee, but as to what positions would be your decision. I will be able to assist with some administration and a tiny pot of funding (for teas and cake)
If you are interested in being part of this please contact me email@example.com
* Plenum (meeting), a meeting of a deliberative assembly in which all members are present; or PGR Congress: a large formal meeting of representatives at which ideas are discussed and information is exchanged.
