Welcome to a unique Spring quarter! This is a challenging time indeed. Throughout it, you may rest assured that UC San Diego and ERC will continue to support and serve students.

The University and the ERC staff and faculty have worked hard to adjust to the unprecedented situation in higher education and across the nation. Many adaptations were developed over the past few weeks to preserve UC San Diego’s high academic standards while ensuring the health and safety of the entire campus community. I truly hope that you will successfully adapt to the Remote Learning experience. I urge you to rely on the modified support services for students, stay focused on your goals, and always be mindful of your well-being.

ERC’s familiar support services are here for you. Academic Advising is ready to do business via the VAC, telephone, and Zoom. CAPS is there for you as well—just call and arrange a Zoom conference. Similarly, the Case Manager and Senior Success Coach will help students navigate the student experience and build on their strengths. Res Life staff and RAs will support ALL students, whether they chose to move back home or remain in the residences, asking only that interaction in the residential areas should be as virtual as possible and always mindful of social distancing. MMW has carefully developed online courses and paved the way for a smooth transition to the digital environment. For your MMW courses, as well as in your other remote courses, please be aware of the resources that the university has made available. These will be noted on course syllabi, Canvas and TritonEd and will also be advertised in emails throughout the quarter.

Because communication and learning will be virtual this quarter, it is important to remember that we remain, members of a real community, one that is defined by more than mere physical proximity on a bustling campus. We take pride in achievement, mutual support and a common commitment to ethical values. Keep in touch with one another. Practice academic integrity at home, set high standards for yourself and uphold the university’s Principles of Community wherever you may be. Together we will learn how to re-create community in the unexpected context of a virtual quarter.


This, too, shall pass. Better days lie ahead!

Greetings ERC Students, most of you are unexpectedly settling into a new home base, either at home or in the residence halls. For all students, virtual interactions will replace face-to-face interactions. No matter how you look at it, this is an extraordinary social experiment and ECHO can help to provide you with resources.
