Integrative Biology Graduate Student Association (IBGSA)

Integrative Biology Graduate Student Association (IBGSA)

The Integrative Biology Graduate Student Association was created with the purpose of uniting the broad and varied interests of all graduate students affiliated with the Department of Integrative Biology at Oregon State University. As an association, we aim to articulate the particular needs of graduate students and advocate for their views on issues within the department, college, and university.

Additionally, we strive to facilitate a strong community among graduate students through both social and academic interactions. Through our numerous committees our membership engages in impactful activities, helping graduate students meet their personal and professional goals. Furthermore, the Integrative Biology Graduate Student Association strives to be be a positive voice for science within our institution and greater community.
