ChBE Graduate Student Advisory Committee

The Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department Graduate Student Advisory Committee (ChBE GSAC) is a representative body of graduate students that acts as a liaison between the graduate students and the administration of the department. We organize events such as the annual Graduate Research Symposium, providing students with a platform to showcase their research and enhance scholarship. We also assist with graduate student recruitment and arrange social events, such as academic networking, welcome week activities, a Thanksgiving potluck, and Halloween celebration. We also organize outreach events such as Toys for Tots, a food drive, and penny wars to create and foster the sense of community service.
