BioSci International Student Association at UCI (BISA)
BioSci International Student Association (BISA) is an undergraduate organization at UC Irvine. Our mission is to support and enrich the academic life of international students majoring in Biological Sciences and other related fields. As an organization that seeks to help students gain access to resources that will help them succeed, we host academic and professional events, such as Bio 199 Research Workshop and Grad School Application Q&A Panel, as well as social events that allow students to meet and make friends with people who share similar interests and future goals.
BioSci Student Council (BSC)
BSC is composed of four external divisions, each one focused by design on a specific need within the student community and led by its respective Vice President. Upon admission into the organization, all BSC members are assigned to one of these divisions in which they are given the opportunity to engage in leadership roles, obtain personal and professional growth, and initiate and execute projects aligned with their division’s purpose.
Human Biology Club
Human Biology Club at UCI is an on-campus organization, open to all students who express interest in biology and human pathology. Established in 2017, they are affiliated with the Human Biology major and work closely with Dr. Andrea Nicholas in order to create a close-knit environment between peers within the major. Their goal is to present an opportunity for classmates and peers to bond outside the classroom to address the need for a supportive social network. Join their events, where they will be hosting case students, guest speakers, and community outreach projects.
The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS @ UCI)
The Minority Association of Pre-Health Students (MAPS @ UCI) is a program sponsored by the Student National Medical Association, the oldest and largest medical student organization dedicated to underrepresented or
underprivileged pre-health students and fostering culturally conscious physicians by increasing awareness of
issues that underrepresented communities face.
MAES @ UCI
MAES was founded in Los Angeles in 1974 to increase the number of Mexican Americans and other Hispanics in the technical and scientific fields. Our MAES chapter here at UCI upholds the same ideals as the national organization and always tries its best to support our MAES familia. This idea of familia is what sets MAES apart from other organizations— we act as the home away from home by providing a sense of community that is difficult to find as a Latino in STEM.
