The Eastern Reading Council currently needs new members!    You do not have to be a Reading major!   You do not even have to be an E#ducation major!    We need people who believe in getting children to read!  We need Freshmen to Seniors and we need both active members and leaders! 

 The Eastern Reading Council (ERC):     Hosts Book Fairs at EWU     Brings literacy nights and reading programs into elementary schools in our area     Helps students gain access to literature in the hopes of spreading the joy of reading to more children

Application for ERC Membership

FYI - for graduate students asking about GSA positions for 2016-17, please refer them online to EagleAxis.    Departments were asked to post their GSA positions there; however, it may be somewhat sporadic.    In addition, be sure to tell students to check with the Library and with special programs like Chicano Ed.   The Education Department was not awarded any GSA positions to fill for 2016-17 so this is the best way we can try to help our students.
