The Joint-Doctoral Program in Ecology Student Committee at San Diego State University is the sister organization to the Ecology Graduate Student Association at UC Davis. We aim to support the students in the JDPE program and provide a link between students, faculty, and administrators at both SDSU and UC Davis.
We meet to discuss student issues and concerns, such as mentorship, program organization, funding, and curriculum. We also hope to provide access to both administrative and academic resources.
The Student Committee serves as a voice for graduate student concerns to the faculty and administrative offices at both SDSU and UC Davis. We take an active role in suggesting and implementing change within the JDPE.
The Student Committee has established a mentorship program, pairing incoming JDPE students with 3rd+ year students who have completed their time at UC Davis.
The Student Committee maintains a database of JDPE student publications and blogs.
The Student Committee members organize and host an annual ecology graduate student retreat, which includes a mini research symposium. We also organize regular social events.
