For example, representing graduate student interests on councils or committees, organizing graduate student events, helping with departmental recruitment, K-12 outreach, etc.
Teaching (Juan Lora): teaching or mentoring that goes above and beyond what is required; positive evaluations or other feedback from students, willingness to help junior graduate students, etc.
