Planning Committee

ISJ consists of graduate students at KU with the primary mission of transforming systems towards social justice. We focus our activities on building a lasting network of leaders, developing cultural awareness, engaging in intellectual stimulation, and developing relationships. As a member of the Research Conference Planning Committee this year, you will work closely in collaboration with faculty members and the ISJ Leadership Team to plan and facilitate all aspects of the Research Conference, including development of a theme, call for proposals, and selection criteria; identification of potential keynote speakers, faculty discussants, and other collaborators; selection of proposals for inclusion in the conference; outreach and promotion of events across campus; and organization of conference logistics. 

The time commitments for this committee will be light during the Fall semester. We will meet approximately once or twice per month in the Fall semester and more frequently in the Spring semester. Interested in being a part of the Planning Committee? Email us at kansasisj@gmail.com
