Biology DEI Book Club

All persons affiliated with the Department of Biology are invited to participate in our DEI Book Club. Every 1-2 months, we choose a new book, and then we meet weekly to discuss chapters. This is an informal group and anyone can join at anytime (email or to sign up). Announcements of new books are shared with the department via email and via the Monthly DEI newsletter.
