The purpose of the Entomology Graduate Student Association shall be to serve the needs, welfare, and interests of present and future entomology graduate students. Measures to meet the needs of our current students include encouraging social interactions between students and departmental faculty and staff (Social Committee), facilitating professional interactions between students and faculty from other universities (Seminar & Special Lectures Committee), teaching members of the public what entomology is and why it is important (Displays, Exhibits & Outreach Committee), providing a computer lab and software to students (Technology & Social Media Committee), and representing the students to the governing bodies of the Entomology Department, the Graduate Student Association (GSA), and UCR as a whole (ISAC Representative, GSA Representative, and EGSA President). Meeting the needs of future graduate students is done by interacting with prospective students on their campus visits (Hospitality Committee), maintaining the EGSA website and UCR Entomology social media accounts (Technology & Social Media Committee), and seeking visibility in Riverside and the surrounding area (Displays, Exhibits & Outreach Committee). Many of these activities would be impossible without funding, and we are fortunate to be able to organize fundraising events (Fundraising & Events Committee) and sell merchandise (Merchandise Committee). We also receive funding from the GSA.
