What is CPUB?
The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania University Biologists (CPUB) was founded in 1973 as an organization to provide support for the teaching and research activities of faculty in the biological sciences from the fourteen state-owned universities in the State System of Higher Education (SSHE). Its activities have included scientific meetings, symposia and institutes for the enhancement of the professional development of its members and associates. It also provides a forum for graduate and undergraduate students for the presentation of their research.
What does CPUB offer?
For members, CPUB offers an opportunity to participate in a variety of professional activities, including
  • presentation by faculty and students of original research at annual meetings.
  • participation in special topic institutes and workshops for faculty, in both teaching and research.
  • exchange between faculty of ideas, labs, procedures and teaching methods.
  • collaboration in research and teaching with colleagues in the SSHE.
  • development of position papers on topics of vital interest to higher education in the Commonwealth.
For the community, CPUB offers a resource of biological and environmental expertise within the faculties of the fourteen SSHE universities, including a speakers list.
