Welcome to the Biology Graduate Student Association (BGSA)
What is the BGSA?
The BGSA is a group of your peers working towards a better graduate experience for all full-time and part-time biology graduate students.
As an organization, we strive to represent biology graduate students on a variety of issues including departmental policies, academic issues, and Teaching Assistant (TA) activities. We are a very active group run by students for students.
In 2005, the BGSA gained representation at the Department Meetings, which greatly facilitates our communication of biology graduate student issues at the departmental level. At the university level, the BGSA represents biology graduate students through its interaction with the Graduate Student Association.
The BGSA also encourages social interaction between biology graduate students through events and intramural sports teams (see Events). We are a visible group in the department and organize several departmental events including BBQs, seminars and coffee and doughnut socials.
If you would like to participate in the BGSA or you have comments, questions or concerns you would like us to address, or you want to start or be part of a specific intramural or intradepartmental sporting event please contact us.
