In order to better engage graduate students in AAAL, the Executive Committee created the Graduate Student Ad Hoc Committee. The committee took shape starting at the 2013 annual conference in Dallas. The efforts of this committee have been chronicled in the AAALetter here and here. The committee aims to serve the needs of graduate student members of AAAL. Please like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. We welcome your ideas, suggestions, and any other contributions to our mission as stated below.

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the AAAL Graduate Student Committee to promote the professional growth of graduate students as researchers and practitioners within the field of applied linguistics, knowing that current graduate students embody the future of the profession. Preparing future applied linguists to enter in the community of practice, as we envision, requires: 1) encouraging informed and active membership, 2) developing and promoting events suited for graduate students’ needs, and 3) building an interconnected community for graduate students that extends beyond their individual institutions. Through these efforts we aim to cultivate graduate students’ professional development as they endeavor to fulfill diverse, significant roles in addressing language-related phenomena, issues, and practices around the world.
