Big Red Barn Advisory Board Created

In response to last spring's Graduate and Professional Student Assembly Resolution R13, the Graduate School is forming a Big Red Barn Advisory Board to strengthen programming and quality of services at the Big Red Barn and to make sure student voices are being heard.

The Advisory Board will provide input on food and programming at the Barn, as well as look for opportunities to serve the graduate and professional student community and to advise on strategies to negotiate resolutions to issues of community concern related to food and programming at the Barn. 

"The Graduate School is committed to building a warm and supportive graduate and professional student community. It's important for us to get input from representatives of the community as we consider Improvements to the programming and services offered at the Big Red Barn Graduate and Professional Student Center," said Barbara A. Knuth, vice provost and dean of the Graduate School.

The Big Red Barn Advisory Board will be composed of graduate students, professional students, faculty, staff, a food vendor, and the Big Red Barn director, Kris Corda. The Board's membership will be capped at ten.  The Board will meet three times during the academic year with the inaugural meeting tentatively scheduled for December.
