The Biology Cultural Union is an organization that seeks to build a community of underrepresented students within the Department of Biology. We are a subsidiary of the AJED committee with independent interests in protecting equity for students.
Vulnerable identities like POC, people with disabilities, religious minorities, low-income students, and sexual and gender minorities, are underrepresented on campus and in STEM. BCU supports undeclared underclassmen through 1:1 mentorship between upperclassmen and underclassmen, seminars and panels, academic advising, and social events. We also guide biology students in navigating professional and academic opportunities.
We are a safe space for students to voice their unique concerns about representation and diversity initiatives in the biology department.
