Graduate Research Advocacy Day
Each year, doctoral students from each UC campus gather in Sacramento to educate lawmakers about the importance of graduate research and its contribution to California’s economy and progress.
March 14th, 2012 marked the third annual Graduate Research Advocacy Day. Twenty students (two from each campus) were selected by their graduate deans as advocates for the research being done by graduate students across the state. The students and deans met with legislators from their local districts to advocate on behalf of UC graduate studies and research.
