Call to Action: Winter 2018

Beyond the basics of joining your regional club and subscribing to the School’s e-newsletters, peruse a few timely ways to get involved and stay connected this quarter.

Tamar Koosed, MPIA ’091. Nominate GPS Outstanding Alum by March 18

Each year, one person is selected by their peers as the School's "outstanding" alumnus or alumna. This honor is given to those who exemplify the positive contributions alumni make through their careers, volunteer work and community involvement. Meet last year's winner, Tamar Koosed, MPIA ’09.

Submit nominations by March 18. The award will officially be presented on June 2 as part of the School’s alumni weekend celebration!

GPS Globetrotters2. Represent the GPS Globetrotters at the Triton 5K!

Round up your spouse, kids, friends, neighbors and pets to show UC San Diego that GPS is the best as part of the Triton 5K on April 15. 

In 2017, the GPS Globetrotters received a campus champion award and this year we’re setting a goal of 200 or more participants led by team captain David Robertson. Live too far away to travel back to campus? Please consider encouraging or sponsoring a local alum or friend to register in your place as a GPS Globetrotter. Don't wait. Sign up today.

Board Nominations3. Refer a stellar student to GPS!

Know someone who’d be a great fit for one of our degree programs? GPS is currently accepting applications on a rolling basis. Tell them about GPS and when they apply, you can email to request an application fee waiver for them. Fee waivers must be requested by the alumnus/alumna with the applicant’s name and degree program to which they are applying. These are non-transferable.

Alumni Weekend4. Submit your class note

If you’ve recently relocated to a new city, started a new job, climbed a mountain, got married or added to your family…GPS wants to celebrate with you. It takes two minutes (or less) to submit a class note and let us know what’s happening in your world, so submit one today.
