Undergraduate Discovery Experiences - Events

2017 Spring Forums

If you would like to provide feedback for the Spring 2017 events please email paul.alivisatos@berkeley.edu, or submit your details/feedback here.

During the Spring 2017 semester we invited faculty, staff, undergraduates, graduate students and postdocs to join a series of discussions relevant to their particular needs.  In addition, concept notes were distributed which emerged out of discussions among the Vice Chancellor for Undergraduate Education, the Vice Chancellor for Research, the Council of College Deans, and the Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarships.  We hope that these notes will continue to stimulate discussion as we advance this initiative.
