GSLC Mission Statement

The Graduate Student Liaison Committee (GSLC) is a group of volunteer graduate students (Masters and PhD) that are responsible for planning graduate student events for the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department at Johns Hopkins University. The goals of the GSLC are to:

  • Coordinate the needs of graduate students with faculty and staff when needed.
  • Foster a sense of community amongst the graduate students within the ChemBE department by:

– Planning and executing social events that promote inclusion and fun on and off campus amongst graduate students and faculty/staff.

– Representing ChemBE to serve and enhance the Johns Hopkins and surrounding Baltimore community through community service and professional development.

We aim to have each lab in the department represented in the GSLC (at least one student from each lab should serve as a volunteer). We also aim to facilitate a collaborative and supportive graduate student body as to improve the graduate student experience here at Johns Hopkins.
