We are looking to reach out to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as faculty and staff at all UC campuses who may be interested in a training program on High Performance Computing (HPC) and Cyberinfrastructure (CI). This program allows students the opportunity for hands-on experience with SDSC’s latest supercomputer, Expanse.
The UCSC Vanpool program is accepting UCSC students, faculty, and staff for new and existing vanpool routes. Join one of the UCSC vanpools from Watsonville, Monterey, or Salinas, or form a new group that wants to commute together, save money and enjoy the ride with other UCSC affiliates. Our Monterey and San Jose routes are looking for staff or grad students who want to train to be full-time or part-time van drivers. Find out if you qualify and you could have your fees fully or partially waived. Email email@example.com to take advantage of a free trial to see if vanpooling is for you!
The program’s goal is to enhance faculty pathways for historically underrepresented groups, particularly Chicanx/Latinx, African Americans, American Indians/Native Americans, Filipinx, and Pacific Islanders in all disciplines; women in STEM; and Asian Americans in the humanities and social sciences. The intent of the program is to provide fellowships for domestic historically underrepresented minorities from federally-designated Californi
This UC PPPF is only available to UC doctoral students who are matriculated in academic PhD programs and have advanced to candidacy. Professional students (e.g. M.D., J.D.) are not eligible.
A note regarding students receiving a Master’s en route: if a student did not earn a bachelor’s degree from a California HSI, and was not enrolled in a master’s program at a California HSI, but was awarded a master’s degree en route to the PhD (at a UC HSI), that student should NOT be considered eligible for this fellowship. If a student was enrolled in and completed a master’s degree at a California HSI (including a UC HSI), that student is eligible for the fellowship (regardless of whether or not the student completed a bachelor’s degree at a California HSI). It is incumbent upon the graduate divisions to ensure that this guideline is followed. Beyond being contrary to the spirit of the Initiative, awarding the fellowship to a UC HSI student who earned a master’s en route to a PhD but does not hold a bachelor’s degree from a California HSI creates inequity for UC students, since not all PhD programs award a master’s degree en route.
· Must be exceptional students (as demonstrated by their research achievements).
· Must have received their bachelor’s or master’s degree (please see Master’s definitions and criteria above) from a California Hispanic Serving Institution (CA HSI)—public or private. Associate degrees from California community colleges do not meet the criteria/eligibility.
· Must have advanced to candidacy prior to being selected for the fellowship.
· Must have letters of support from Faculty Advisor(s) that address the student’s performance and potential as an exceptional academic, and comment on the likelihood that the student will pursue a professoriate path after receiving their PhD.
· Must have a demonstrated record of advancing issues of inclusion, equity, and diversity; actively supporting underrepresented communities; and show commitment to pursuing these efforts throughout their career.
If you know of students who meet the eligibility criteria, please encourage them to apply. Interested students should submit the following materials to Assistant Dean, Stephanie Casher (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, February 18, 2022:
- Letter of application (2 pages maximum) from the nominee/student that speaks to the eligibility criteria and how much fellowship support the student has received to date
- Letters of support from Faculty Advisor(s)
The Darrell and Elaine Long Prize in Experimental Engineering will be awarded annually to the student who produces the best PhD dissertation in experimental engineering. To qualify for the Long Prize, dissertations must include results that are amenable to experimental confirmation; the prize is not intended to recognize purely theoretical work. A committee of experimentalist faculty will evaluate nominations and determine the recipient.
Darrell Long is a Distinguished Professor of the Jack Baskin School of Engineering, and inaugural holder of the Kumar Malavalli Endowed Chair in Storage Systems Research. He is inaugural Editor-in-Chief, IEEE Letters of the Computer Society, and Editor-in-Chief, emeritus, of the ACM Transactions on Storage. In 2002, he was the founder of the Conference on File and Storage Technologies (FAST), one of the most prestigious venues in the computer data storage field. Professor Long’s research interests include computer data storage, operating systems, distributed computing, and computer security. He met his wife Elaine when they were children in elementary school, and they married in 2016 to share their golden years.
We are seeking nominations of graduating PhD students for the 2022 Darrell and Elaine Long Prize in Experimental Engineering. This endowment, which will continue to grow and offer prizes moving forward, has an expected award of $1684 this year.
This award is eligible to students who:
- are graduating with a PhD in the 2021-2022 academic year
- have a significant experimental component to their research
- are in any academic department or program
Each department can submit up to 2 nominations. Please include:
- a nomination letter from a faculty member
- the student's CV
- the PhD thesis abstract
Deadline to Apply: Friday, March 11, 2022

Friday, February 18–Enacting Solidarities: Faculty/Staff Affinity Groups Report Back
The Faculty Community Networking Program was created to provide DEI arenas of community, development, and support for faculty from historically marginalized communities on campus. In this forum, leaders of these groups will present the issues and recommendations that emerged from their collective discussions, and report back on their groups’ experiences in trying to improve faculty community, development, and support. Discussion will focus on how to move this work forward.

Friday, April 1– Calling Out Whiteness in University Structures of Leadership
Centering the voices and lived experiences of faculty of color (FOC) navigating university leadership is critical for exposing and transforming problematic structures. From a brief research talk, audiences will learn how FOC navigate and reform structures of Whiteness in leadership. Interactive discussion with divisional deans will follow, with goals of understanding how to bolster the leadership efforts of FOC and undo structures of Whiteness.

TBD–Recognizing Invisible Labor in the University: Ways Forward
Recent research and social movements have highlighted ways that racism and sexism remain entrenched in the academy. Patterns of faculty workload show clear inequities, with faculty from historically minoritized groups disproportionately doing more service, diversity and mentoring work, with women faculty doing more teaching and service. These activities are essential to university functioning, yet are often invisible and unrewarded, leading to lower productivity and decreased retention. In this event, our panelists will discuss examples of promising practices and policies that have been developed both within the University of California system and beyond, for recognizing and rewarding invisible labor.
Event Location: Zoom
The CSE Graduate Advising Team will be hosting a CSE Winter Forum on how to meet the MS Capstone requirements.
At the event, we'll address frequently asked questions we receive from students about the MS Capstone requirements. We'll also provide recommendations on how to select the Capstone Plan that's right for you, identify and confirm a faculty advisor, enroll in the required Capstone course for your program, and how to collaborate effectively with your faculty advisor.
The CSE Winter Forum will be held via Zoom from 12pm to 1pm Pacific Time on Tuesday, February 15th.
To attend the event, please register by no later than 10am Pacific Time on February 15th by completing the following form: https://ucsc.zoom.us/meeting/
Please note that you may be required to use your UCSC account to register for the event and to access the event via Zoom.
Please email email@example.com if you have any questions about the event.
