Coronavirus Updates for the Graduate Education Community

We continue to follow the developments of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and monitor situations on campus and around the world, and the safety, wellbeing, and educational experience of our graduate education community are our highest priorities. Please visit this page frequently for new information and resources for UC Davis graduate students.

Current Campus Status

UC Davis is committed to the health and well-being of our community. We have a dedicated team working to inform our campus response, and we are working closely with local and state public health departments and the University of California Office of the President.

 Davis campus is currently at "reduced operations" in a gradual reopening. Updates to the campus operation status can be found on the Finance, Operations and Administration website.

Visit the Campus Ready website for the latest information, and visit the UC Davis Coronavirus Information page for news and an archive of past updates. 

Graduate Student Q&A Events

Incoming Student Webinar

New graduate students always face challenges in learning their field's norms, expectations, and paths to success in their first academic quarter. The COVID-19 pandemic has made navigating this "Hidden Curriculum" even more challenging. On September 23, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time, Associate Dean of Graduate Programs Duncan Temple Lang and Associate Dean of Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars Ellen Hartigan-O’Connor hosted a town hall webinar for incoming UC Davis students. They were joined by a panel of current graduate students and staff experts. The panel addressed questions and provide additional insight regarding the resources and services available to graduate students. Incoming students had the opportunity to submit questions in advance and live during the webcast.

Continuing Student Webinar

In August, Graduate Studies hosted a special webinar designed to support you in the continued pursuit of your graduate education in an era marked by rapid change and disruption. The webinar featured a panel of graduate students and campus leaders, including the Associate Dean of Graduate Programs and Associate Dean of Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars for Graduate Studies. Students were encouraged to submit questions in advance of the broadcast, and our panelists addressed questions and concerns as part of the live event. Panelist and graduate student Neetha Iyer also compiled a list of resources to share with the graduate student community.
