About Us

We are the Chemistry Graduate Council (CGC), an SMU Chemistry Graduate Student Association. We have two objectives: (1) to further the professional development of the chemistry graduate students and (2) to bring more fun to the graduate life.

We adopt an informal organization form, in which ideas or suggestions from members will be discussed in a monthly general meeting (with lunch provided).

CGC officers are elected annually to help organizing and executing the programs or activities approved in the general meeting.

All of SMU chemistry graduate (Master or Ph.D) students are automatically admitted as members and have the rights to participate in all CGC activities. CGC also offers limited amount of funding for conference registration fees for its active members.

For internal communications between CGC members please use CGC Wiki. Please also visit (and join) our Facebook page.
