Greetings Fellow Graduate Students, it is my esteemed pleasure to welcome you to the AERA Graduate Student Council (GSC). I’m deeply humbled to serve as the 2018-2019 Chair of the AERA GSC.
 

The mission and the goal of the AERA GSC is to collaborate with the broader community of AERA to support student participation and engagement through GSC events, programs, and services with our commitment to advancing vibrant and engaging professional networks and social spaces for graduate student members of AERA.

With the upcoming 2019 annual conference - “Leveraging Education Research in a ‘Post-Truth’ Era: Multimodal Narratives to Democratize Evidence.”, we are expecting to engage graduate student educational researchers around the world in conversations about meaningful research and scholarship and innovative practices to promote not only the value of our inquiry and the knowledge we generate, but also the diversity and equity in education in this changing time at AERA meetings and the beyond.

As your Chair, I’m looking forward to bringing in global perspectives and strengthening AERA’s commitment to diversity and inclusion by supporting students throughout our vast network in their academic and professional development.

I sincerely hope this message has been able to convince you of the value of both the GSC and your participation, and I encourage you to visit our website and newsletter for further information regarding updated GSC events, programs, services, and this year’s annual conference.

Your ideas are always welcomed. Please do not hesitate to contact me at weijiaw2@uw.edu.

Hope to see you in Toronto, Canada!

Sincerely.

Weijia Wang

Greetings Fellow Graduate Students,

It is my esteemed pleasure to welcome you to the AERA Graduate Student Council (GSC). I am honored and humbled to serve as the 2018-2019 Chair-Elect of the AERA GSC. 

The mission and goal of the AERA GSC are to facilitate, promote, develop, and support emerging scholars as they transition from graduate students to professional scholars. The AERA GSC is committed to helping graduate students navigate the obstacles, rewards, challenges, and support networks of academic life. 

With the upcoming 2019 theme, “Leveraging Education Research in a “Post-Truth” Era: Multimodal Narratives to Democratize Evidence”, we are expecting to engage graduate student educational researchers worldwide in meaningful and diverse conversations on topics related to political policies. As we prepare for Toronto, this gives our graduate student population an opportunity to challenge and push back against "Post-Truth" ideology through our research, scholarship, and leadership. 

As your chair-elect, I hope to offer more student involvement throughout AERA, offer more access to information through webinars, and continue to grow our student support network. I hope to create an environment where we as students can support each other, hold our organization accountable, and grow the graduate student council towards new opportunities. 

I encourage you to explore the 2019 AERA theme and subthemes as you seek ways to get involved within GSC. As graduate students, you play a vital role in the success of our organization. I hope this prompts you to visit our website and newsletter for further information regarding our GSC events, programs, services, and this year's annual conference. 

You and your ideas are always welcome. Please do not hesitate to contact me at DkDaniel@unm.edu.

Hope to see you in Toronto!

Sincerely,

Desa Karye Daniel
