Your support for the annual Latino Excellence and Achievement Dinner (LEAD) will impact the future of graduate education at UCI.
This year marks the fifth anniversary of the inaugural LEAD gala. To date, LEAD is the only awards ceremony in the University of California system that elevates Hispanic and Latino/Latina/Latinx graduate student success.
Every spring, LEAD brings together the campus to raise awareness of challenges in the graduate community, increase visibility of success, and inspire the Hispanic and Latino/a/x community to advance in graduate and postdoctoral programs.
This year, the campus recognized graduate research excellence and leadership in all 15 academic units plus 6 members of the broader community who support graduate success at UCI. A list of LEAD 2022 awardees is available here.
Your contribution will help fund graduate student awards for this annual UCI tradition.
