John Vollum from the graduate school is looking for volunteers to serve on a focus group to help develop online tools to track progress on degree benchmarks (e.g. courses, degree program form, etc). If you are willing to help him out, or have additional questions, please e-mail him (email@example.com) by May 2nd. This would be a really valuable tool for all of us; I encourage you to help out if you have time!
