Welcome

Welcome to the Renaissance Society of America (RSA) Student Community on Humanities Commons (HC). We will be using this space as a forum to connect with and support current and future student members of RSA. The space is moderated by the RSA Student Council, a group consisting of the Graduate Student Advisory Committee (appointed by the RSA President, serving at least two-year terms).

Please complete this survey to help inform the RSA’s student relations strategy. Your answers will guide our efforts to enhance the student experience at the RSA. The survey will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes, and your responses are completely anonymous. If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact rsa@rsa.org.

Netiquette: The RSA Student Community on HC is a shared space. Please be mindful and respectful of your fellow colleagues. When posting in the discussion topics, we welcome constructive feedback and discourage prescriptive language.
