Our grad students and postdocs
Today I am sharing a message that I sent earlier this week to all our graduate students and postdocs here at the UC San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering. I deeply value our graduate students and postdocs. Individually and collectively, they are essential to our mission: to leverage engineering and computer science for the public good.
I will let the message speak for itself. (For the most part!) I decided to share it with our broader Jacobs School community because we all have skin in the game when it comes to ensuring the professional and personal success of our graduate students and postdocs. The message includes a list of many of the available resources here at the Jacobs School and across campus.
Directly or indirectly, everything that we do here at the Jacobs School supports our efforts to create and maintain intellectual, academic and physical ecosystems that drive real-world impact through technical innovation. Graduate students and postdocs are, of course, critical to these ecosystems.
Our work to build and strengthen these ecosystems is never done. As I wrote last month, we are a world-class engineering school that celebrates what we value. To truly celebrate our graduate students and postdocs, we must work together to co-create the intellectual, academic and physical ecosystems that fully empower our entire community. This is how we train and inspire tomorrow's innovation workforce.
I am profoundly grateful to everyone who has stepped up to support our mission over the years. I look forward to engaging with an ever wider circle in our community. Together we leverage engineering and computer science for the public good. This is, indeed, how we make bold possible.
