Want to know what it’s like to go to Law School? Dreaming of becoming a doctor? Reaching for that MBA? What about taking the next step and pursuing another degree? Then look no further! The ASUC Undergraduate-Graduate Mentorship Program (UGMP) provides an opportunity for undergraduate students to obtain individualized guidance from a graduate student. The graduate student will be a mentor who will offer advice and answers to the undergraduate who is interested in gaining more knowledge about his/her academic field of interest, the graduate school process, or just about future academic endeavors.
Participants will be expected to enroll in and attend a DeCal during the spring semester, which will take place every other week for an hour and a half. The class will include guest speakers and panelists directed towards providing undergraduates with information about graduate school. Mentors and mentees should meet at least once a week outside of class to reflect on course workshops and gain advice on their future goals.
This is a great chance for undergraduate students to take advantage of the wisdom and experiences of the graduate and professional degree students on campus. Not only will undergraduates learn about the graduate process, but they will also establish relationships with their mentors, bringing students with similar interests together.
So Apply Now! Applications will be due in late January, and the DeCal will begin in early February of Spring 2012 with a mixer to introduce the undergraduate and graduate students to one another and allow them to mingle and hopefully find the right mentor/mentee. Like us on Facebook, and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions!
It is the ASUC’s hope for the program to enhance the Cal student community’s academic potential, to close the gap between undergraduate and graduate education, and to continue the academic success of this university.

CA Higher Education Sustainability Conference
Hosted by UC Davis
June 18th-22nd, 2012
Submissions Due: January 20th, 2012
The California Higher Education Sustainability Conference (CHESC) highlights cutting-edge case studies as well as research, curriculum development, and community partnerships. This unique event is jointly organized by independent/private colleges, California Community Colleges, California State Universities, and the University of California creating the opportunity for dialogue across institutions.
The CHESC seeks speakers who have crossed silos within their institutions to create sustainable change, infuse concepts of sustainability into curriculum, and/or to pursue research questions related to sustainability (especially where the research has or could be applied to campus sustainability). We are especially excited about proposals where a connection has been made across academic and operational departments. In the words of Fritjof Capra:
“The more we study the major problems of our time, the more we come to realize that they cannot be viewed in isolation. They are systemic problems, which means that they are interconnected and interdependent.”
Campus staff, faculty, students, and administrators are encouraged to submit proposals on case studies, pilot programs, and replicable best practices. We are equally interested in projects where a key lesson was learned and projects that were successful in the traditional sense.
This year potential speakers will be asked to submit proposals that highlight or create a link between at least two of our core topic areas (click the titles below for more information on each):
a. Climate Action Planning
d. Food Systems
e. Green Building
g. Institutionalizing Sustainability
h. Local (Regional Case Studies)
i. Procurement and Business Services
l. Social Equity
m. Student Affairs and Auxiliaries
o. Waste Reduction and Recycling
p. Water and Landscape
During this call for proposals process, we will also be accepting proposals for:
Throughout the conference, we will highlight posters that describe research, creative activities, and best practices related to sustainability. This is an opportunity for students, faculty, campus staff, and administrators to present and communicate their work from the past academic year to a diverse audience.
The convergence is a post-conference, half-day workshop on Thursday, June 21st, 2012. It will highlight new student campaigns, upcoming projects, and skill sharing workshops. Students will also have a chance to network with other student leaders from California Community Colleges, California State University, University of California, and Private campuses throughout the state collectively as well as with students from their own systems. The convergence is free, and students can attend it without attending the main conference.
