The goal of the GSA is to make the lives of graduate students in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology (CCB) a little easier. As an organization, we plan events both educational and extracurricular open to all graduate students of the CCB. Each year the GSA works with the Faculty members to organize the Department Colloquium, the "end of the year" party, International Day, new graduate student open-house, and various department sponsored poster sessions etc. The GSA has very close ties to the department faculty and therefore serve as graduate student support group. We have weekly meetings with the department chair and other faculty members who respectfully entertain any issues that arise in regards to teaching, research/advisor issues or anything else that may arise. Please contact us with your questions or comments.
