Help us select the 2nd Campus Global Theme!

The Campus Global Theme program identifies a topic linked to one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and engages the entire UC Davis community in related discussion, learning, discovery, and action. The inaugural Campus Global Theme Food for Thought: Feeding Ourselves, Feeding the Planet, will come to an end during Spring Quarter 2021, and we are looking for your input to help select the second theme, which will run from Fall 2021 through Spring 2023. After the theme selection we will put out a call for proposals for workshops, field trips, lectures, film or book discussions, and other ways to invite participants to engage the theme.

Submissions are due by December 4, 2020. Please visit the Global Affairs webpage to learn more.

Grants for Advancing Sustainable Development Goals

Global Affairs, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and the Office of Sustainability are pleased to announce the call for grants to promote multidisciplinary collaborations focused on one or more of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The Grants for Advancing Sustainable Development Goals facilitate faculty work on the economic, social, and environmental issues that are critical to humankind at the local, regional, national, and international levels. These challenges are complex and interlinked, and to address them requires multi-disciplinary, transdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder collaborations. UC Davis is committed to contributing to the achievement of these goals through research, teaching, and service.

Proposals are due by January 11, 2021.
