Student Initiatives

English Student Advisory Committee (ESAC)

ESAC is a student-driven organization made up of majors who want to help build community and represent the student perspective in the department. Each year there is an opportunity to reimagine the role ESAC might play.

In the past, the committee has organized fun social events to promote bonding among majors, as well as interesting intellectual events about books, language, literature, and literary criticism. ESAC has also helped advise faculty on changes to the curriculum and on questions of departmental climate and inclusion. And the committee has traditionally served as a point of contact for prospective majors.
