BMMB Graduate Student Association
The Biochemistry, Microbiology, and Molecular Biology Graduate Student Association (BMMB GSA) was founded in 2014 and consists of a maximum of eight elected graduate student officers: President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Climate & Diversity Chair, Mentoring Chair, and First-Year Liaison(s). Elections are held annually in the spring.
The mission of the BMMB GSA is to build and nurture community within the BMMB graduate student body, both professionally and socially, as well as to facilitate communication between the graduate student body and BMMB department faculty and staff. GSA members represent the BMMB graduate student body, promote graduate student interests, and advocate for graduate students on several departmental committees, including the Steering Committee and Climate & Diversity Committee.
To build and support our community, the BMMB GSA sponsors a variety of activities, including:
