Student Services Offce 

Mission Statement: The Biology Student Services Office partners with university and department faculty and staff to empower students along their educational journeys.  Our core values include inclusivity, advocacy, accountability, and integrity. 

If you still have questions after reviewing the information on this website, feel free to contact the Student Services Office. Starting 9/20/21 there will be at least one staff member onsite in Gilbert 118 Monday-Thursday from roughly 9am to 4pm.  While drop ins are always welcome (even just for candy!), we highly encourage students to schedule appointments. This allows us to better serve you during our meetings and will help with social distancing within the office. Note, there may also be times when onsite staff need to attend other virtual or in-person meetings.
