Student Achievement Week

June 07, 2018

By Stacey Sketo Rosener, Assistant Vice Provost for Undergraduate Advising 

As graduation 2018 nears, UC Santa Cruz is taking the opportunity to recognize our students' accomplishments through Student Achievement Week, which takes place June 4-8. Designed to highlight achievements in research and other scholarly activities, many students will present their work during a multitude of events, including the Annual Print Sale, art exhibitions, theater productions, and poster symposiums.

Student Achievement Week is coordinated by the Office of Campus Advising Coordination, which also hosts or co-hosts some important events designed to showcase student success on our campus. These events include the Chancellor’s and Steck Awards Luncheon, the Koret Scholars Undergraduate Research Slam, and the Phi Beta Kappa Induction Ceremony. Events hosted by other divisions, include the First Generation Initiative, Sammy Showcase, and Annual Undergraduate History Showcase. These are just a few examples of the more than 15 events that take place across the campus.

The Office of Campus Advising Coordination has two new employees spearheading honors and research initiatives for the campus. Don Bard joined the office in April as Coordinator of Undergraduate Honors and Research Opportunities and Zoë Davis joined the office in November as College Scholars and Koret Grant Assistant. Working with Faculty Director Matt O’Hara, Don and Zoë work to encourage and enhance the academic experience of students who seek exceptional challenge and growth.
