New Student Liaison Position

In response to the recommendation by the University’s Equity Action Plan that we “honour student perspectives on belonging and inclusion and engage with students to improve teaching and program development,” the Department of English has created the position of Student Liaison. The task of the Liaison will be to listen to student concerns related to the classroom, courses, or departmental culture more generally, and to represent students to the Department or to advocate on their behalf when appropriate. The Liaison will also support the Department in remaining accountable to its own Equity Statement. If you wish to contact the Student Liaison please send an e-mail to All communications will remain confidential unless otherwise specified. Until June 30, 2024, the position will be held by Dr. Iain Higgins.
