Galapagos Roundtable

The Galapagos Roundtable is a committee of representatives from each NC State college. The overarching goal of the Roundtable is to leverage the university's membership in the International Galapagos Science Consortium. Roundtable meetings serve as a forum for discussions regarding current and future Galapagos-related research, training and education activities. Roundtable members will disseminate key information to faculty, staff, and students in their respective colleges.


This page features key information pertaining to the Roundtable and its meetings. Content shared includes information about the Roundtable members, recordings from meetings, and other relevant materials to aid in NC State’s efforts at the Galapagos Science Center (GSC).
