I think it's high time grad students in this field stopped toiling away in isolation and came together cross campus boundaries. I know there are more than a few of us ferreting out the same set of obscure journal articles or struggling to define exactly how we wish to get this great intellectual idea we have into words and actions others can understand. 

So let's get started. Invite your friends and colleagues. I have some ideas for what we can do, both here and offline. Feel free to add other ideas in the comments below. 

  • Peer to peer collaboration on similar projects.
  • Webinars presenting our research to other students or professionals
  • Discussions about courses that are available to students from other campuses
  • Blog posts on our experiences with our grad program
  • Posting of research opportunities, inspirations or ideas
  • ???
