Dean's Message: Outgrow the Expected
Those of us on campus are hearing the phrase “Outgrow the Expected” a lot now – even working from home. With a graduating class of seniors about to celebrate the momentous accomplishment of completing their degrees, it’s the time of year when we celebrate the students who have lived up to our campus spirit of outgrowing the expected. The last two years have seen no shortage of obstacles – from learning remotely, to remaining safe while still participating in hands-on study – so, congrats class of 2021!
Commencement begins Friday, June 11. This year’s ceremony a fusion of in-person and virtual, you can find the campus hub for all things graduation-related here. (That’s also where you’ll find the portal to the CBS annual awards webpages, which will list all of our 2020-21 student awards recipients.)
The College’s AvenueB program is looking for alumni and professional mentors for our incoming transfer students this fall. The program supports transfer students as they transition from community colleges into academic careers here at UC Davis. If you’d like to volunteer to support a new UC Davis student on their academic journey, you can find more information about how to become a mentor here.
As we enter summer celebrating the accomplishments of our students, we’ll also take some time to step away from our computer screens. The CBS newsletter will be taking a two-month break and returning in September with a few surprises, including a fresh look!
In the meantime, from all of us at CBS, we wish our graduating students the best of luck in their future endeavors and the rest of you a safe and restorative summer.
