SBMS Student Academic and Social Society (SBMS SASS)
The role of the School of Biomedical Sciences Student and Academic Social Society (SBMS SASS) is to promote networking, collegiality and community spirit among all members of the School through the hosting of special events, activities and fundraising.
The SBMS SASS committee aims to encourage a welcoming and collegial environment for all students and staff, with focus to provide an avenue for HDR student leadership and staff-student collaboration on shared goals and activities. To do this, we facilitate regular social events open to all members of the School to develop relationships and build community spirit. Throughout 2021, we have already shown success to plan and host HDR events such as student seminars, regular mixers and other events (morning tea, social soccer and badminton etc.), to improve the cohort experience and build collegiality among students. Each year, we host the annual SBMS Research, Teaching and Learning Awards Night.
Our interests are networking and socialising.
