On Wednesday, January 18th, the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) held its first-ever open house.
The purpose of the event was to increase undergraduate student awareness and familiarity of the opportunities within DUE. This event was created by student employees, after they noticed that a large portion of undergraduates were unaware about the academic support services and high-impact programs available.
The open house was a success as it garnered nearly 200 student attendees. Among the programs represented were: the Blue, Gold and Black Mentorship Program, the Academic Resource Center, and the Health Professions Advising Center. Highlights included a fantastic speech from the new Associate Dean of Student Success, Dr. Robert Ream, a visit from UCR’s very own mascot, Scotty the Bear, Chancellor’s Research Fellows, Capital Internship alumni and Undergraduate Research Journal student editors. And of course, a special thank you to ASPB for co-sponsoring this event.
Ultimately, the student employees hope this event will become a recurring one, dedicated towards spreading the word about the Division’s initiatives and programs. Together we cultivate student success by providing academic support, experiential learning, and research opportunities. Through collaboration with our students, campus, and community, we remain at the forefront of innovation and creativity to enable students to reach their highest potential.
