Welcome to the fourth annual CSU Summer Symposium and Graduate Program Fair at UCLA!
We are happy to have you join us for an afternoon featuring research presentations by students from neighboring CSU campuses, and information sessions on graduate training opportunities in STEM at UCLA. The aim of the Symposium and Fair is to promote scientific exchange and provide information on graduate educational opportunities as a way to strengthen interactions between CSU capstone research programs and UCLA graduate programs.
UCLA offers a wide variety of exceptional graduate programs in STEM. The college, with Divisions of Life and Physical Sciences, is located on a single campus with the School of Medicine and hospital. This proximity provides a wealth of research training opportunities and promotes a collaborative and collegial culture of discovery and innovation that crosses traditional academic boundaries and spans disciplines, departments and schools. Our UCLA STEM community is built on core values of openness, inclusion, and respect that foster creativity and excellence by embracing a diversity of backgrounds, experience, ideas, and approaches.
We welcome CSU participants and extend thanks to our UCLA graduate program representatives.
