The Social Committee members are each responsible for a specific category of events within the Social Committee. For instance, there will be a committee member responsible for the journal discussions, intramural teams, and the mentoring program. The Social Committee also organizes the highly popular seasonal picnics!
The UIUC BMES chapter has a large commitment to mentorship programs. Our program connects our upperclassmen with underclassmen in order to facilitate learning and teamwork. By building these connections, our underclassmen are equipped with the skills needed to make a positive impact within the biomedical community. Our execution of this idea was recognized at the National BMES Conference with the 2016 Outstanding Mentoring Program Award.
