USP goes to Bauhaus
Hallo und Willkommen! - Hello and Welcome!
The Urban Studies & Planning Program at UC San Diego has selected six undergraduate students in the program to travel abroad to the School of Architecture and Urbanism at the Bauhaus University in Weimar, Germany.
We six undergraduate students - Harold dela Cruz, Ariel Jacome-López, Jane Kang, Garrett Sauls, Ginger Stout, and Robyn Wong - were nominated by USP faculty to represent UC San Diego in a weeklong academic, cultural, and collaborative urban planning and design workshop with Bauhaus University faculty and students.
Bauhaus-Universität Weimar has a network of over 200 partner institutions worldwide, and long-term “Strategic Partnerships” with Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MGSU), Tongji University in Shanghai and now USP at UC San Diego - the only American university to have been selected for this honor. Bauhaus was granted government funding to form these strategic international partnerships focused on interdisciplinary research and the promotion of young and talented individuals. They chose our program because of our focus on blending theory with practice in both the student learning experience as well as faculty research.
The German government and UC San Diego have pulled together the funds to cover lodging and meals to enable us to attend this workshop, which leaves only the cost of travel - that's where we hope you'll help us!
We are so fortunate to have been offered this academic and professional opportunity and your tax-deductible gift in any amount will make it a reality! We hope you will support us by giving and sharing this page on social media using the hashtag #USPinthehaus, and if you are interested in following up on our work and happenings while in Germany, make sure to check out the blog we created - USP Goes Bauhaus.
Danke! - Thank you!
