In Solidarity and Support of Our Community

Dear GPS Alumni,

I hope this message finds you and your families safe and well. 

The past few months have been difficult for humanity and for our alumni community. Whether you are recovering from the virus itself, dealing with the fallout of remote work or job loss, and being isolated from normal activities, GPS and UC San Diego are here to support you.

Below you will find a list of resources that we hope are helpful to you at this time spanning from continuing learning to personal wellness:

Additionally, if you’re looking to find alumni and network with other industry professionals, we invite you to join us on Tritons Connect. If you are looking for a transition or career advising support, we’re here for you as well.

Some of you have inquired about how you can help our students. In addition to offering to mentor students on Tritons Connect, please continue to send job and internship opportunities to our Career Services team. To support our students who are working unpaid internships remotely, you may wish to consider making a gift to the GPS Summer Internship Fund.

As we adapt to the current circumstances and as things evolve, we will continue to provide you with webinars and online content. We hope you will join us live for these, but if you miss one you can find both summary highlight reels and the full webinars available here.

To stay up to date on GPS news and updates, we also encourage you to look for the GPS monthly newsletter in your email inbox. In an effort to streamline our communications and share information more immediately, moving forward, we will be discontinuing the alumni-specific newsletter. However, we know that you will benefit from the monthly content in the general GPS newsletter which highlights our faculty, students and of course, our amazing alumni.

As we move forward and into recovery, I look forward to seeing you again, either online or in person at virtual and live events, when possible. Until then, stay healthy and be well. 

All the best,

Nurit Mandel
