Graduate Student Organization

The goal of the organization is to:

  • Further professional development of graduate students within the Department
  • Facilitate communication among graduate students and Departmental faculty
  • Foster fellowship among graduate students within and among Departments
  • Encourage attendance at conferences and professional meetings to improve scientific communication through oral and poster presentations and networking skills

How do we do this?
