Coffee, Cupcakes, and TREC

Posted on October 31, 2011 in Graduate School, Graduate Student Union

The GSU Teaching, Research, Ethics, and Career Committee (TREC) invites all Notre Dame graduate students to take an afternoon study break on Tuesday, November 8 from 2-4pm for FREE coffee, hot chocolate, apple cider, cupcakes, and other delicious treats in the LaFortune Ballroom. The purpose of this informal event is to introduce graduate students to TREC, the new professional development committee of GSU. The mission of TREC is to serve the ND graduate student body by providing a bridge between the professional development components of its namesake (Teaching, Research, Ethics, and Career) and consists of student representatives from a diverse range of departments. TREC officers sit on the Graduate School Professional Development Team and bring ideas to the committee for planning events and initiatives to facilitate graduate training at Notre Dame. There will be an opportunity to talk to TREC members about ongoing efforts and to provide suggestions and comments for future events, as well as to discuss the professional needs and goals of graduate students.

Feel free to drop by at any time during the event, but please pre-register at the following so that we ensure enough treats will be available for all attendees:
