Lehigh University's Department of Bioengineering Graduate Student Organizations

Graduate Student Senate (GSS)

The Graudate Student Senate is an organization on our campus, through Graduate Education & Life, that is aimed at providing additional support for Lehigh University's graduate students and their respective units. This organization is comprised of the executive board, unit representatives, club representatives, and committee representatives. 

For bioengineering's graudate programs, we have two unit representatives that attend regular meetings and advocate on behalf of the graduate students in our department. These representatives are: Taylor Krajewski and Lisette Werba.
