In order to align with campus directives regarding the COVID-19 response and to ensure community health and safety, Community Studies advising has shifted online. Advising is available via email or Zoom. We will continue to be available in this manner until we are directed to return onsite. When you are emailing us please always use your UCSC email account, and provide your full name and student ID number.

A Note About Internet Connection from the Advisor: Internet in the Santa Cruz Mountains can be spotty and cell service is not available. Apologies ahead of time if we are disconnected or if I am not able to connect for our meeting. I will do my best to connect with you as soon as I have internet connection again.
