Graduate Student Organization
Department of Molecular and Cell Biology
University of California, Berkeley
The GSO is organized and run by MCB
graduate students, acting as a liaison between the university-wide Graduate
Assembly, MCB, and our grad students. Our department is unique in that it
encourages such extensive student participation. GSO members actively
participate in Recruitment, departmental seminars, faculty search committees,
and policy decisions.
And of course, the GSO is here to serve student
interests. We keep MCB students
informed of department news and policies, help advise incoming first-years
about classes, and organize information panels for advice on fellowship
applications and qualifying exams.
Please take a look at our Constitution for
specific offices and the GSO bylaws. To find out what’s been happening in
your division, contact the appropriate officer. If you have any questions or
would like to bring something to the attention of the department, division,
or GSO, please contact the appropriate officer or the president, Elisa Zhang.
And finally, if you’d like to be involved in the
GSO, contact the current officer for more information, and remember to
nominate yourself next May!
