Committee of Graduate Students (CoGS)

The Committee of Graduate Students (CoGS) advocates on behalf of the English Department's graduate students while acting as a mediator between graduate students and the department's faculty and administrative personnel. CoGS is dedicated to graduate student issues and will continue to work to address these needs and requests. Elections for CoGS officers are held every fall quarter with committee service from winter quarter through the next fall.
