What Matters to Me & Why – Student Series

“What Matters to Me and Why” encourages reflection about values, beliefs and motivations in the lives of those who shape our university. The series explores personal journeys – choices made, difficulties encountered, commitments formed and joys revealed – with the hope that these stories will help us to understand diverse pathways in life, work and leadership. Such understandings are crucial for fortifying tolerance, strengthening bonds, and supporting the virtues that make UCI a great institution.

We encourage all undergraduates to join us to hear Fatima’s, Tejas’ and Polina’s individual journeys and unique perspectives.  Pizza and salad will be served.  Please complete the event registration form to register.
