VIRTUAL: Celebrating the Humanities – Spring Awards

June 5, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm  |  


We hope you will join us for our annual celebration recognizing student and faculty academic achievement in the Humanities Division at UC Santa Cruz. Friends and family are welcome. Even though we are not able to celebrate together in person as we usually do, we can still come together online to honor the outstanding accomplishments of our students and faculty.

Our online program will include a special live message from Chancellor Larive congratulating our scholars. We will then share a pre-recorded video of award presentations and return to a live format to congratulate all of our scholars with a group toast.

Be sure to come with a glass to raise!

You will be sent a link to the Zoom meeting request on June 5th at 10:00 a.m.
