ABOUT US

Plant Science Council (PSC) at the University of Florida is formed by undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs studying or interested in plant science research, breeding, and extension. PSC helps to develop leadership skills by encouraging members to organize and participate in professional activities such as entirely student-led symposiums, seminars, and workshop series. As well as providing our members with leadership opportunities the PSC also seeks to expand member knowledge and experience in plant sciences, promote networking opportunities, and be a positive influence in agriculture and the community by education and giving back. Overall, the PSC aims to promote academic and career resources to help members gain transferable skills from an out of syllabus experience.
