Experience: myCHOICE Trainee Action Committee


We are looking for current graduate student and postdoctoral trainees to form the myCHOICE Trainee Action Committee (mTAC). Our goal is to involve trainees from multiple STEM Divisions (BSD, PSD, IME, and others) to increase the diversity and relevance of our programming to all members of the STEM trainee community. mTAC will generate novel programming suggestions to be funded by myCHOICE and its members will take leadership roles in planning and executing these suggestions. In doing so, mTAC members will help myCHOICE to continue to align with the ever-evolving needs of its constituents.

The Committee is expected to:

  • Access existing offerings and provide suggestions for ways to optimize various elements of the program.
  • Suggest innovative new approaches for programs and initiatives that complement existing framework and fit with the myCHOICE mission.
  • Present proposals directly to myCHOICE leadership. Drs. Mike Tessel and Briana Konnick (the myCHOICE Program Navigators and UChicagoGRAD liaisons) will advise the Committee.


To apply to be a member of the myCHOICE Trainee Action Committee, please submit a resume (max 2 pages) and short cover letter describing your interest in joining the committee and types of programming that you would like to develop. Send your application materials directly to Abby Stayart, Program Director.
