On behalf of Global Affairs, I would like to congratulate our esteemed colleague Ermias Kebreab, who has been named the Associate Dean of Global Engagement and Director of the World Food Center in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, starting January 15, 2019.
As we continue to expand the global reach of UC Davis and internationalize our campus, we also have had to create new procedures and policies: 1. new international agreement procedures, reviewed by the Academic Senate, to streamline the process of partnering with international institutions and 2. a new international travel policy to ensure trip registration and safety.
As you register for the 2018 International Research Conference at UC Davis (Sept. 17-18), UC Davis Global Affairs invites you to also register for one of our pre-conference tours on Sept. 16 and enjoy some of the world’s best wine and most beautiful scenery before the conference begins.
We are here to support our international community and our staff members are here to provide as much information and assistance as possible. You can contact Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) if you have concerns or need assistance related to this executive order via email at email@example.com or find staff contact information on the SISS website.
On behalf of Global Affairs at the University of California, Davis, I offer my sincere condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Distinguished Professor Susan Williams for this heartbreaking loss.
You have undoubtedly seen the news in the last few days regarding President Trump’s executive order that prevents persons from seven countries (Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, and Somalia) from entering the United States.
