LivArchiveCASP LIVING ARCHIVE
Joel Burke, Cohort 2017
In the summer of 2017 we piloted a new project at CASP 101 (our summer transition program), that we call the CASP Living Archive. For the Living Archive, we interviewed and recorded individual student's personal narratives. 

These interviews were held before their first Fall quarter as UCSD students and we will be offering them the opportunity to be interviewed again, before they graduate from UCSD. 
All interviews published as part of this series are with the permission of the students.

Thank you to all of our Chancellor's Associates Scholars that attended the Hearts and Scholars dinner on February15th!

The Hearts and Scholars is an annual event that unites UC San Diego scholarship recipients with the philanthropists who support them. Chancellor Khosla shared with the crowd the important impact of scholarships, as they transform students' lives and the UC San Diego community for the better because each scholarship has a ripple effect as our students use their education to change our world.
