Coronavirus Information for the UC San Diego Community

 The goal of the ongoing initiative is to continue in-person teaching, research and service in the safest way possible. Positive case rates on campus have remained consistently low compared to regional and national case rates. As a result, UC San Diego was able to resume full on-campus operations in fall 2021 and has served as a best practice model for other institutions.

Triton Parent & Family Ambassador

Parents and families play an important role in their student’s educational journey. One student’s experience at UC San Diego will differ from other students, which means the ways in which that student is supported will differ from how other students are supported by their family. Triton Parent & Family Ambassadors share how they support their student’s college experience with other family members and the UC San Diego community. No matter your hometown or country, or family make-up, every family member possesses life skills and knowledge that support their student’s college experience. Request to be a Triton Parent & Family Ambassador today!
