WHO ARE WE?
The Biochemistry Graduate Student Council (BGSC) is composed of four members who are elected to represent the Biochemistry graduate student body in an annual, student-wide election. Three members serve as core BGSC representatives (one of which coordinates our outreach efforts), while the fourth member is the Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC) Biochemistry representative.
Our mission as the Biochemistry Graduate Student Council is to promote student interests at Duke University both within and outside of the Biochemistry Department. This includes acting as liaison between students and faculty or other Duke administrators, representing Biochemistry student interests at the Graduate & Professional Student Council as well as facilitating social and outreach events.
WHAT DO WE DO?
At their biannual meetings, BGSC and interested students gather to discuss upcoming events hosted by the BGSC, which include science-oriented volunteer activities, social events, and Duke student life activities. BGSC also helps to identify and solve issues related to graduate student life by communicating with the department and with the Graduate School.
