EEB Graduate Student Association
This organization provides a forum in which all graduate students in the EEB department are welcome to discuss any issues relevant to graduate school. We typically have between two and three meetings a semester, but additional meetings can be called as necessary. The organization is run by a group of student officers. Meetings follow parliamentary procedure, as well as the guidelines specified by our constitution and by-laws. Activities undertaken by the organization include an annual t-shirt design fundraiser, hosting of our own research symposium, and the invitation of a seminar speaker.
All students in the department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology working towards a Ph.D., M.S., of B.S/M.S. are eligible for GSA membership.
The EEB Graduate Student Association advisor is Robin Chazdon.
Terms of all offices are for one year, typically starting around September 1. Elections are held at the first GSA meeting of the fall semester, when current officers are either re-elected or replaced by another graduate student. Additional GSA officer positions may be created as necessary, and obsolete positions may be disbanded.
