The job hunt is no longer about the perfect résumé or great interview. In order to get your foot in the door or find new opportunities, you need to network and connect to the people that you meet.
You’re invited to the 2012 Diversity Career Networking Event, where you can learn about careers that interest you from the people who are already there. It’s your chance to get together with UW alumni and friends from a wide range of fields to get the answers and advice on your next step.
The Diversity Networking Reception is hosted by the UW Alumni Association in partnership with the Office of Minority Affairs and Diversity, who have come together to create the UW Mentor Power for Success Program. Open to all students in the UW Mentor Program, as well as students in other diversity programs across OMA&D and throughout the University of Washington.
When: Wednesday, March 7th, 2012
5:00 pm – 7:30 pm (Doors open at 4:30 pm)
Where: Washington Commons
Cost: Free admission! Free food!
The event will start with a distinguished panel of leaders, so our students can hear first-hand from high level executives and chief officers about how to be prepared for future success and build their leadership and entrepreneurial strengths. The panel portion of the program will be followed by a networking reception with about 15 alumni mentors to field specific questions, and give leadership and career advice. We are inviting many undergraduate and graduate students of color and students affiliated with OMA&D programs. Our goal for the event is for students to see themselves as leaders and change-agents through panelists’ and alumni mentors’ words of wisdom, stories of triumph, and personal experiences. This panel is not focused on any specific industry, but on what it really takes to be a successful, innovative, and passionate leader, regardless of their field of choice. We also hope to encourage them to pursue competitive majors, STEM related fields, and Graduate school.
RSVP is required and space is limited. This is your next step to a great career,

GLSEN is accepting applications for the annual Safe Schools Advocacy Summit. Every year, they bring 40 people to DC (half of them students) to learn about current policy initiatives and train on lobbying skills followed by a day on the Hill. This year, the event will be March 24-27. They select people based on a variety of factors with state and congressional district playing a leading role. Click here for more information–>
In concert with the UNCF-Mellon Summer Ecology Program, the National Science Foundation, Federation of American Scientists for Experimental Biology and American Society for Cell Biology, University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Laboratories’ Blinks-REU Research Internship Program offers paid summer research internships on San Juan Island in the state of Washington. These internships cover 100% of research interns’ costs, including round trip airfare, room and board, research supplies, and a stipend of $1000 per month. During their eight week internship, students will work directly with one marine scientist and rub elbows with other scientists from around the world.
San Juan Island offers a pristine, biologically diverse environment for marine science research. The cool temperate waters are rich in plankton and support staggering biodiversity across dozens of phyla ranging from microscopic plankton to killer whales. Summers are warm and generally dry.
Student interns will investigate timely and important topics, including ecology, climate change, neuroscience, developmental biology, marine birds, and more. Many of our former research interns have co-authored publications in peer-reviewed journals, attended scientific conferences, and have gone on to attend graduate school.
Applicants from all ethnic groups traditionally under-represented in the sciences are especially encouraged to apply. Applications are due March 1. Click here for more information–>
“Through field trips, lectures, and labs, everyone was able to get a really hands-on experience. For basically all of the labs, we went out on the dock and collected samples of the things we were learning about in class. That kind of relationship between the class and the field is something I have never experienced. FHL is unique in that you are able to directly observe the things you are reading about.” Alex Ulmke, FHL Student Autumn 2011
Learn how you can get involved with Friday Harbor Labs (FHL), UW’s world renowned marine station on San Juan Island. FHL faculty and former students will share their experiences, talk about their research, and answer questions. FHL is an ideal place to spend a quarter and jump-start your career in the marine sciences, education, medicine, law and policy, poetry and more! All courses involve fieldwork, boats, laboratory work, and research mentorship from award-winning faculty. Any UW student can spend a quarter at FHL.
Consider doing something extraordinary spring quarter. Study off-campus at Friday Harbor Labs (FHL), UW’s world renowned marine station on San Juan Island. FHL is an ideal place to jump-start a career in the marine sciences, education, medicine, law and policy, and more!
All courses involve fieldwork, boats, laboratory work, and research mentorship from award-winning faculty. Freshmen-seniors and post-bacs are encouraged to apply. Tuition is the same as the Seattle campus, financial aid applies, and more aid is available as needed:
Marine Sedimentary Processes Apprenticeship: Elwha River Dam Removal Impacts
Students work with UW Oceanographers to examine the impacts on the coastal and marine ecosystems from removing two dams from the Elwha River, the biggest watershed on the Olympic Peninsula. The dams are scheduled to be removed during 2011 with the goal of habitat restoration. However, we do not yet understand the full range of effects that “restoration” will have. Apprentices explore the effects of the added sediment discharge in high quantities during dam removal near the mouths of rivers.
Marine Zoology, Botany, and Ocean Acidification Quarter
Students in this program take from 14-16 credits from this list of courses:
- Marine Zoology (BIOL 430) plus Marine Botany (BIOL 445)
- Developmental Biology (BIOL 411)
- Chemical Oceanography (OCEAN 400)
- Climate Change and Coastal Marine Organisms Apprenticeship (BIOL 479).
- Ocean Acidification Research Apprenticeship (OCEAN 479)
All courses include lecture, laboratory, and field components that:
- Survey the groups of marine invertebrates and plants represented in the San Juan Archipelago
- Study embryology and subsequent development of vertebrate and invertebrate animals, including Xenopus, mammals, chicks, Drosophila, echinoderms.
- Explore what controls the composition of seawater and how humans are changing it.
In addition, the two research apprenticeships connect students with current research projects that focus on the effects of climate change on individual marine organisms and their communities.
