ISyE Weekly Teas for Faculty and Graudate Students

Primary tabs

The ISyE Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC) is committed to improving the quality of life for graduate students in the H. Milton Stewart School of Industrial and Systems Engineering. GSAC hosts a variety of weekly and annual activities, one being the ISyE Weekly Teas. These gatherings take place every Wednesday (2:30-3:30PM) during Spring and Fall semesters, providing an informal setting that allows students and faculty to interact.

The weekly tea is a great opportunity for graduate students and faculty to get to know each other and meet new people.* says Dan Steffy, GSAC's Weekly Tea organizer. From the start, these events have been very popular with students and faculty alike.

GSAC's overall role is to provide input to the associate chair for Graduate Studies as it relates to broad issues affecting graduate students in the school as well as to matters that have the potential to enhance the interface between graduate students and school faculty and administration. The committee consists of four, full-time graduate students, at least three of whom are pursuing Ph.Ds. Members are appointed by the associate chair for Graduate Studies, and term membership is two years. Current GSAC members include:
Clarence Wardell (president), Lori Houghtalen, Fatma Kilinc Karzan, and Dan Steffy.

ISyE's GSAC hosts various activities such as intramural sports teams, the annual Fall Picnic, as well as relevant seminars for faculty and graduate students. Stay tuned as GSAC prepares its calendar for Fall 2007.
