Call to Action: Fall 2017

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.

Board Nominations1. Refer a stellar student to GPS!

Know someone who’d be a great fit for one of our degree programs? Tell them about GPS and when they apply, you can email Sonja Steinbrech 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.


Regional Clubs2. Join the community

No longer in La Jolla? No problem. Connect with fellow alumni at regional club events. Take a look at what’s coming up and attend the next event.

Don’t forget to check out UC San Diego regional clubs while you’re at it. Great people. Great networking. Great Fun!


Company-Jobs3. Hear ye, hear ye: Calling all leaders

The New York  Alumni Club is looking for 2-3 alumni to serve as regional club leaders, helping to coordinate occasional events and sharing information with the alumni community.

Curious for more information? Contact Nurit Mandel for further details.


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.

Koosed in Guatemala5. You in action!

GPS is seeking photos of alumni working “in the field.” It could be you located in a rural field or in a concrete jungle…both are welcome!

Send us a high-resolution picture of you at work. Include your name, class year and where the picture was taken.


Social Media6. Be a champion for GPS through social media

While we have your eyes on a screen, go ahead and follow the School on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, and be sure to add GPS to your LinkedIn profile and join our LinkedIn group.

Take your online engagement a step further by sharing one of the School’s recent posts, tagging us in a photo with classmates or by posting an update or relevant professional advice and articles to the LinkedIn alumni group.
