What is the BSA?

The Biology Students' Association (BSA) is a Students' Union sanctioned, departmental club at the University of Calgary that aims to provide community engagement opportunities, academic resources & professional development to its members.


It was founded in 1994 with the purpose of supporting Biological Sciences students at the University of Calgary. Whether you are a student in Biochemistry, Cellular Molecular & Microbial Biology, Ecology, Plant Biology, Zoology or a general Biological Sciences student, the BSA aims to be a central hub for you to feel included on campus. 

The BSA is currently composed of an Executive Council of 6 members that manages the day to day affairs of the association. The BSA also has an advisory committee, the "BSA Committee", that is chaired by Dr. Heather Addy. This Committee provides any consultation to the BSA and is also a facet to promote communication between University administration and students.
