Triton Community Programming Leaders (TCPLs)

The Triton Community Programming Leaders (TCPLs) are a dynamic team of students who are recruited, selected, and hired to work with the Office of Parent & Family Programs. The TCPLs serve a key role in the facilitation of ongoing programmatic efforts by Parent & Family Programs

Parent & Family Programs views the relationship with our students' parents and families as a partnership - a partnership created to help students be successful. We also believe that "when parents are informed, students benefit." TCPLs help in this endeavor in the following ways:

  • Help families of newly admitted undergraduate students become acquainted with UC San Diego.  Address questions students, parents and families have during Triton Day, Summer Send-Offs and Orientation.
  • Invite families to spend time on campus with their UC San Diego student, learn more about campus life and have fun with annual events, such as Family Weekend and Siblings Day.
  • Communicate with families via the Parents’ Helpline, email blasts and social media, and through publications like the website, Triton Family Connection E-Newsletter, Parent Guide, and Triton Transitions Calendar.
