Cal State University (CSU) Summer Symposium and Graduate Program Fair at UCLA
Join us for an afternoon of research presentations by CSU students 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. This event is meant to allow CSU students an opportunity to network with UCLA faculty and promote their excellent research prior to their applying to graduate programs. We have seen an increase in CSU student acceptance since beginning this symposium and we hope to continue to make CSU students visible to our graduate programs.
UCLA offers a wide variety of exceptional graduate programs in STEM. The college, with the 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 the core values of openness, inclusion, and respect that foster creativity and excellence by embracing a diversity of backgrounds, experiences, ideas, and approaches.
This event is co-sponsored by Graduate Programs in Bioscience and the UCLA Division of Graduate Education. We welcome CSU participants and extend thanks to our UCLA graduate program representatives.
