About Us

The Plant Biology Association of Graduate Students at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign is a student-led group focused on supporting graduate student life and development. We organize departmental colloquiums and poster sessions throughout the year. We also support graduate student social life with our famous annual chili cook-off, happy hours, and field trips.

We aim to connect science and the community. We present demonstrations at science fairs. We give greenhouse tours and help with plant sales to support the Plant Biology conservatory. If you are interested in science demonstrations or connecting with scientists, please contact us!

If you are a graduate student in the Plant Biology Dept. at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, please join our listserv for updates about our events.

This is our organization. Help us make it awesome.
