Emily Miller’s essay about the role of Resident Graduate Students struck a chord with me (On the Campus, May issue). It’s clear she and other Resident Graduate Students have their finger on the pulse of today’s undergraduate life in a way most professors and administrators never could. If those making policy decisions for students aren’t already consulting with Resident Graduate Students, I hope they start inviting them to the table (and compensating them for their time!) as the University assesses academic policies and examines the larger campus culture.
