Welcome to SGC!

The SEBS Governing Council (SGC) serves the student body of the Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS). By reaching out to both the community and the faculty/administration, the SGC works to amplify the student voice and represent the needs and concerns of the student body. The council also allocates budgets for student groups affiliated with the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences.

Message from the President

Welcome to the SEBS Governing Council!

My name is Richard Yang and I am a senior in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences majoring in Biotechnology. I am serving your President of the SEBS Governing Council for the 2022-2023 academic year!

The SEBS Governing Council strives to be the voice of the students at the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences- to listen to your opinions and concerns and to solve them. Together, we can make a difference in both the SEBS and Rutgers community.

As President, my main goal is to restrengthen SGC after the COVID-19 pandemic so that we are once again an organization that all SEBS students can take pride in. I also hope to address the many academic concerns that SEBS students have as well as assist our students with some of the unique challenges they face at only SEBS, such as the mandatory research requirement. Rutgers holds a place dear in my heart and together, we can make your four years at Rutgers University just as memorable! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at Let’s make this year a great one!

– Richard Yang
