Programming Committee


What is Programming Committee?

The GSRC Programming Committee is a team of graduate students that plan events for the UCLA graduate student community centered around the following areas: diversity and inclusion, health and well-being, financial wellness, graduate students with dependents, and first-generation graduate students.


The GSRC Programming Committee advocates for and implements campus programs to enhance graduate student community and improve the graduate student experience.



The following values are representative of the 2019-2020 GSRC Programming Committee and were determined through group consensus and discussion. 

Equity & Inclusion 

  • We welcome all graduate communities and strive to provide inclusive programming that acknowledges the diverse identities and experiences of the graduate student population.


  • We are dedicated to fostering a welcoming community that inspires students to seek peer support and sustain wellness practices including community and self-care.


  • We welcome the input and feedback of all graduate students to create intentional programming centered around their needs. 


  • We strive to promote an enjoyable, energetic, and community based environment for all Programming Committee members and graduate students.


  • We recognize authenticity as essential to any work that is creative and intentional. We believe building trust, honoring honesty, and prioritizing relationships is key to building community-oriented programs on campus. 


  • We make efforts to work with other departments and organizations to collaborate, share ideas, and bring programming to under-served and underrepresented parts of campus.

Program Consultant, Health and Wellbeing  - To be filled



Department/Program: MURP, Urban and Regional Planning

Committee Role: Program Consultant, Diversity & Inclusion

Why are you passionate about your role on Programming Committee?  I am excited about Diversity and Inclusion because it celebrates and centers the strengths of UCLA's campus. Through my work, I hope to offer underserved and underrepresented graduate students and sense of community and belonging.

Fun Fact: I used to DJ/emcee open mic nights and slam poetry competitions.

Advice for Current Graduate Students: Prioritize time for things that keep you grounded.




Committee Role: Financial Wellness Consultant

Why are you passionate about your role on Programming Committee?  I am passionate about financial wellness because it's directly related to one's physical, emotional and social wellness. I want to help other students at UCLA achieve financial wellness so that they are positioned to succeed in all areas of their lives.

Fun Fact: I was born and raised in Hawaii until I was ten years old.

Advice for Current Graduate Students: I don't have much advice to give because I haven't started my own grad program yet! But, I would advise any student in a quarter system to stay on task and keep up with their assignments and responsibilities on a weekly basis. 10 weeks will pass by super quickly!
