About the CBSAA
The CBS Alumni Association (CBSAA) is a volunteer-driven association that represents the alumni of the College of Biological Science (CBS) at the University of Guelph. We support the mission and vision of U of G and CBS through alumni engagement opportunities and providing student support. Our mission is:
- To create new opportunities to engage alumni;
- To maintain a pulse on alumni activities in the community;
- To collaborate with internal departments to forward the mission of the College; and
- To provide valuable input and expertise into changes.
The CBSAA also works with the CBS Student Council and Alumni Affairs & Development to engage students and help them in their transition into alumni.
