Ethnic Studies &

at UC San Diego
My name is Tom K. Brown, and I’m the coordinator of UCSD’s McNair Program, which helps first-generation college students from low-income families and students from underrepresented ethnic groups to prepare for graduate research and professorial careers.
I’m sending this message to you to request that you pass along to students the following (and attached) information about our McNair Program. The program annually runs from November through 8 weeks of the summer, and gives students the opportunity to do research in the academic field of their choosing. Currently—through October 24th—we are accepting applications for admission to the program. If possible, please post and distribute the attached flier and the information about the application process.
Every year, the program admits students and provides them with the opportunity to do research under the guidance of a faculty member and to receive money for summer research. We now seek applications from students with an interest in research and a strong academic record and who will be UCSD juniors and seniors this fall. Over 80 of the program’s alumni have already earned their PhD’s, and dozens more are currently enrolled in graduate programs.
To be eligible, students must be U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents and should have a cumulative GPA of least a 2.9 and must be either (1) a first-generation college student qualifying as “low income” by Federal Standards or (2) a member of an ethnic group underrepresented in American universities (African American, Native American, Alaskan Native, Chicano/Latino or Pacific Islander).
Applications are due on October 24th for the 2018-2019 McNair cohort, and are ordinarily submitted online. The application requires a letter of recommendation by a faculty member and a statement of purpose (among other requirements) and so students should begin the application process soon.
To apply, students should go online to aep.ucsd.edu, click on “McNair Program,” and follow the instructions provided there.
Applications are online at our web site: https://students.ucsd.edu/sponsor/mcnair/

We in the Academic Outreach Resource Center are in the process of soliciting applications for the 2019 Law Fellows Program. Please find attached a copy of the 2019 Law Fellows Program application. We would like you, one of our most valuable resources, to help identify potential applicants for this year’s Program.
As you know, The Law Fellows Program provides early academic development to high-potential undergraduate students and college graduates, with at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA at a four-year undergraduate institution. The initial deadline is September 28, 2018. Although we will continue to accept applications after the initial deadline, we highly encourage applicants to submit their applications as early as possible to ensure maximum consideration. The program activities will commence in January 2019, and admission decisions for the program will be made throughout December.

Dear Community Members and Faith Leaders,
Are you interested in issues surrounding policing in your area? Do you want to learn how religious leaders are getting involved to build trust and restore the relationship between the police and communities in San Diego County? Take a look at July’s newsletter here.
On January 31, the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (Kroc IPJ) at the University of San Diego launched a handbook and website in collaboration with the San Diego Organizing Project (SDOP) and the Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego. These resources are for religious and community leaders to use to improve relationships and build trust between police and community members, and they were informed by more than 80 conversations with religious leaders, law enforcement, and community members across San Diego County.
The Kroc IPJ is now building and supporting community cohorts of religious leaders to identify challenges and develop solutions to improve police-community relations in their specific areas. Stay updated about police-community events in your area and learn more about the leaders in your community taking the initiative to restore the relationship with the police in our monthly newsletter.
