US2020 has announced that San Francisco is one of seven winners of a national competition to encourage mentoring in STEM fields. The awards were created in response to President Obama’s call to action to get more girls and boys engaged in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The winners will share $1million in financial, consulting and staff support over the next year to launch their plans. News of the awards was first announced at the White House Science Fair earlier this week.
All students, family and friends of graduates, mentors, and the whole UCSF community will be able to take part in Graduate Division Commencement this year.
For the first time ever, the ceremony will be simulcast live starting at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, Friday, May 23. Watch it at: tinyurl.com/UCSFGradDivCommencement
Interim Chancellor Sam Hawgood recently presented two UCSF graduate students, Charles Morgan and Dr. Carolyn Sufrin (also a UCSF faculty member), with awards for their outstanding service to the community. These students remind us that UCSF is a place where people not only learn to do good science, but also learn to do good.
The Graduate Division wishes a very happy 30th to the UCSF/UC Berkeley Graduate Program in Bioengineering! The occasion was marked with a grand celebration at UCSF Mission Bay on April 26.
