We are the organization of the graduate students in the Institute of Ecology and Evolution (IEE, formerly the Center for Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) at the University of Oregon. We are a recognized student organization of the Associated Students of the University of Oregon (ASUO). Our long-term goals 1. Enhance graduate student communication and relationships with the other graduate students, the Biology Faculty and the GTFF. 2. Encourage academic leadership among biology graduate students by hosting seminar speakers in ecology and evolutionary biology, subsidizing student research and travel to scientific meetings, offering workshops to advise undergraduates considering graduate degrees in the life sciences, and providing research funds for undergraduate research projects under GrEBES mentorship. 3. Provide graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and undergraduates with career-building advice through a series of informal workshops or seminars. 4. Participate in community service and outreach programs outside of the UO campus. We are an active group with regular meetings and an involved membership.
