6. International Education Week

UC Davis will be celebrating International Education Week November 14-18, 2016. If your unit or department will be holding an internationally oriented event during that time period, please let me know so we can add it to our IEW Events Calendar

We have several $50 grants to help student organizations put on an event during International Education Week. The planning committee encourages student organizations to plan an event that is open to the public and/or student community that highlights a global event or issue. Possible events include a multi-cultural potluck, speakers, dance performances or lessons, film festival, teaching an international sport or game, increasing awareness of global issues in our campus community or raising funds to support international community in need.  Please complete this online application. For questions, please contact iew@ucdavis.edu.

7. Reminder: Campus Side Chats

The FUTURE program, which is a NIH-funded career exploration program for Ph.D. students and postdoctoral scholars in the biomedical sciences*, is launching “Campus-Side Chats”, a monthly informal meetup with Ph.D. professionals in non-academic/non-professoriate science careers. This is a great opportunity for students and postdocs to find out about internship/career opportunities, network, and learn about alternative career paths. (*Biomedical sciences is defined broadly as any research that is related to the advancement of health.)

Our first meet up will be on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 3:00 pm at Hot Pizza. Our featured guests are Drs. Janice Morand and Marjannie Akintunde, who will be talking about their careers in Graduate-level Career and Professional Advising.

Light refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served. Space for each meetup is limited so we strongly recommend that postdocs and Ph.D. students RSVP. Priority will be given to students and postdocs registered in the FUTURE program.

8. Coffee Bagel Donut Day

Coffee Bagel Donut Day Friday October 28th, 8:30 -10:30 am South Silo! Come get your fill of coffee, donuts, bagels, watermelon, bananas, make your own oatmeal, and tea!
