English Graduate Union

The English Graduate Union (EGU) comprises and represents all English graduate students and operates as the collective voice of the English graduate body. Its officers, who are elected annually, work closely with the department's faculty and administration of the University to ensure that policy decisions reflect student concerns. The EGU holds general body meetings at least once a quarter and on an as-needed basis. The EGU officers may be reached via e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The officers for 2015-2016 are Kirsten Lew (President), Caitlin Benson (Vice President), Michael Vignola (Vice President) and Andrew Wagner (Vice-President). As they enter or move through the stages of the UCLA English Graduate Program, students are strongly encouraged to contact any of the students listed in the EGU’s website who have volunteered to act as resources in their literary field.
