Cash prizes of $400 or $200 will be awarded to the best presenters in each session!   You know your research is fascinating, so why not share it with others?   Members from other departments and even the local community are genuinely curious about what you work on here at UCI. It is a unique experience of a 7-minute TED-style talk in front of a lay audience!   Busy preparing for an upcoming conference?   Submit a less technical version of your conference abstract to the Symposium!

Office of the VP of External Affairs: SB201 Call to Action

On Campus

We access the administrators; your voices get heard. We advocate for you on issues of housingparking, campus budgeting, and the various student services services on campus.

Social Events

We want to bring you out of your labs, offices, and libraries! In addition to hosting an ever-increasing variety of fabulous events, we fund graduate-student-initiated events and projects!


Currently, we draw some independent income as the primary stakeholder in UCI’s Anthill Pub & Grill, a landmark cultural institution at UCI. We are also open to your on-campus business ideas!

Off Campus

We are deeply involved with lobbying state and national legislatures. Though we advocate on other issues, we are primarily fighting the state of California’s divestment from public higher education.
