The Academic Enrichment Programs (AEP) is hosting a one-day Community College Symposium on Friday, May 19th (8am-4:30pm @ UC San Diego Qualcomm Institute).

We are currently seeking volunteers for this exciting event.

The purpose of the symposium is to expose community college students to the diverse areas of research in all departments at UC San Diego. Students from Community Colleges in the San Diego area will attend. The day will include research talks by faculty members and students, poster session by students, roundtable discussions, and tours.

Here is how you can help:

  • Roundtable panelist: Are you currently doing research or enjoy discussing research? Take part in an interactive exchange with community college students. UCSD students will be paired with CC students during lunch to discuss the faculty talks, poster sessions, and their research.
  • General volunteer: We are seeking volunteers to help with event day setup and facilitation. Volunteers can sign up for available shifts.

This is a great opportunity to hear about research in various fields and engage in exchange experiences with students from different colleges.
