Our Mission

The Graduate Student Workshop Committee (GSWC) is a student-run organization within the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota. In collaboration with the Office of the Director of Graduate Studies, the GSWC creates high-quality programs of relevance to the department’s graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, with special emphasis on career preparation and professional development. The goals of the committee are three-fold:

  • Produce workshops and pertinent resources of interest to graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in the field of chemistry
  • Promote opportunities for student/faculty interaction outside the traditional classroom setting
  • Provide student leadership, professional service, and networking opportunities

To learn more about the committee or upcoming workshops, send email to chemgswc@umn.edu.
