Activities and Organizations


The Student Educational Policy Committee, or SEPC, is a student-faculty liaison group which provides faculty with student input on professors, candidates, curriculum, and other departmental issues. It also organizes social events within the department.


The department occasionally sponsors retreats for students and faculty. Recent retreats include a trip to the Midbrains Conference at Macalester College, and the University of Wisconsin at Madison.
