The Chemistry Postgraduate Society (CPS) was formed in 1997† and maintains an active profile today. The Society was originally formed by the postgraduate student body to give research students in the School a voice.
Staff and students are spread over two locations (the Masson Building and the Bio21 Institute). The CPS remains strong and active, holding many functions, including an annual dinner, trivia nights, BBQs, sporting events and fund raising activities. Functions are generally held every couple of months and are supported by the Graduate Student Association.
Elected annually, the committee is made up of research students undertaking PhD, MPhil, MSc and BSc(Honours) degrees from across the school of Chemistry. The current committee is listed below.
† Founding secretary Colette Boskovic is now a Senior Lecturer in the School.
