Graduate Students "Got Community?"
Wednesday, January 20, 2010
12-1pm Dolores Huerta Room
Graduate students often find their campus communities "shrinking" as academic pursuits narrow interests to specific areas of study.  Come learn about the resources of the Campus Community Centers, the role the Centers play in building community on UC San Diego's campus, and how you can expand your sense of community and connection here at UC San Diego.  All are welcome to be a part of the conversation, and particularly individuals from communities that are often marginalized in graduate study, including women, people of color and the LGBT community,
