November 2020 Everything you wanted to know about Grad school but were afraid to ask.
This event was for Undergraduates, and we tried to especially reach out to those students who might not otherwise consider graduate school in their career path. After presentations by professors and graduate students, we had discussion groups where students could ask questions to professors directly. We have amassed the questions and answers that we were asked by students both before & at the event into this Grad School Q & A resource.

June 2020 Biology Anti-Racism event
The Biology department held our first anti-racism event in June 2020. In spite of being held out of the academic year, we had great attendance for this event, with over 70 members of our community attending. We broke into mixed student/staff/faculty groups and discussed EDI issues that were important for our community. You can find slides from this event here.
