English Graduate Organization

English Graduate Organization

The English Graduate Organization provides both social and academic support to students in the English graduate programs at IUP. All graduate students are encouraged to participate in the events organized throughout the academic year.

What is EGO?

The IUP English Graduate Organization (EGO) serves many functions. EGO is a place where you can share your ideas, concerns, and graduate experience with your peers. The organization serves as a place to make friends, learn about and participate in events, and to ensure that your voice as an English graduate student is heard.

EGO serves all graduate students who are enrolled in English programs in IUP. Our organization caters to students in the Composition and TESOL, Generalist, and Literature and Criticism graduate programs. By becoming a student in any one of these programs, you are automatically a member of EGO. Membership is free, and students are not obligated to attend organization meetings, although it is encouraged as it is a great way to meet other students who share your passions and interests.

English Graduate OrganizationSocial Events

Throughout the semester, EGO organizes social events in local Indiana restaurants for graduate students to meet and share ideas and experiences.


EGO also organizes on-campus workshops for graduate students to share scholarly ideas and experiences.


EGO sponsors and schedules several conferences and colloquia throughout the academic year. These events are open to all graduate students and are designed to foster academic and professional development.

Stay Connected

If you wish to keep up to date with all the day-to-day activities of EGO, or you simply wish to stay in touch with other members of the organization, join our Facebook group. We constantly update our group by adding messages, photos, and events. It is the best way to find out what is happening in EGO other than attending meetings or through word of mouth.

Note: You need to be on the IUP social network in order to join the group. Simply go to your Facebook profile preferences and add IUP to your network.
