Affiliate Chair, Bioengineering Graduate Student Association (BIOE GSA)
The affiliate chair can be held by one or two people. The roles are focused on professional development and community engagement. In the last two years, we started a series of panels and workshops focused on connecting students with alumni and advanced degree holders in the area. The goal of the series is to introduce students to career opportunities outside of academia and allow them to network and build professional skills. We have also partnered with S-STEM to provide STEM outreach to K-12 schools in the Houston area.
