The program takes place every Friday of winter quarter, 1:00–4:30 p.m. Pacific Time, with the exception of the first meeting, January 6, which meets 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m. Pacific. Two classes are held jointly with the Staff Leadership Academy.

To join the program, your faculty adviser or principal investigator must recommend you with an email to Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies Peter Biehl at and state in the email that you are in good academic standing and able to commit to attending every meeting.

Certification of completion of the GSLP will be provided by the Division of Graduate Studies. The UCSC Academic Senate Graduate Council has reviewed and approved the program, and completion of the program is recorded as an official credential on your transcript.

Zoom virtual attendance is available to those attending classes or conducting research remotely or needing to attend virtually for accessibility or to accommodate their schedules.
