The CBE chapter of the graduate student association (GSA) is a group that exists to offer students in our department encouragement for a healthy work/life balance. We hold many fun and engaging events throughout the academic school year, as well as the summer months for those that remain around campus. In addition to these non-academically focused events, the CBE-GSA also exists to communicate ideas from the students to the university (e.g., complaints over student fees, curriculum suggestions, etc.), and to act as a vehicle for transmitting UB communications to the students (e.g., funding opportunities, writing workshops, speaker events, etc.). Please contact the current CBE-GSA president Janel Abbott for more information.
