SAGE is a student advisory board and leadership opportunity for graduate students at Illinois that fosters active engagement with Graduate College programs and initiatives. SAGE board members enrich graduate student community, build leadership skills, and strengthen Graduate College services and programs. This board contributes to the graduate student community at Illinois by providing varied perspectives that enhance the academic, professional, and social experience of graduate students at the university. They also provide valuable input for Graduate College programs, resources, and services.
The Graduate College strives to have an advisory board that reflects both the disciplinary and cultural diversity of our students, including diversity of race, ethnicity, gender, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, and geographic region. We welcome applications from graduate students in master's, doctoral and online graduate degrees, who will be enrolled during the 2020-2021 academic year and are in good academic standing.
