Announcing the 2021-2022 CSCI Trainee Council

As some of you may know, the CSCI trainee council was formed out of the 2018 retreat. The input and feedback of trainees is a valuable contribution towards CSCI programming. Previous action items implemented by the council include the monthly member lab spotlight, a non-academic career panel, hosting a seminar speaker, and a trainee resource list-serve. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the cessation of in person programming, the council has not been active in some time.


We are excited to announce the formation of the 2021-2022 CSCI trainee council, and would like to introduce you to its members.
