Last week, eleven Woodland Community College (WCC) students began conducting research in UC Davis science laboratories as part of the WCC MESA Undergraduate Research Scholars Program (MURSP). MURSP is an opportunity for community college students to gain hands-on research experience at an early stage in their STEM career. Students are participating in enrichment activities to enhance their preparation and confidence to transfer to a four-year university and pursue a career in a STEM field. The eight-week paid summer research program runs from June 20, 2023 - August 11, 2023 and culminates with a student poster presentation session. This program is in partnership with the University of California, Davis Graduate Preparatory Programs, Graduate Student & Post Doctoral SACNAS Chapter at UCD, and the UCD Microbiology Graduate Group.
Our chapter is organizing seven professional development seminars. This week our MURSP students learn about how to write a Resume/CV. This workshop was presented by the Internship & Career Center (ICC) on campus.
