Alumna Julie Packard and Executive Director of the Monterey Bay Aquarium gifted UCSC with a tremendous donation that established the Dean’s Fund for diversity programs at UCSC. As the student body here on campus has diversified, the student populations in the lab have remained static, but the Julie Packard fund allows more students to get hands-on research. Packard funds allow students the opportunity to be part of the Summer Research Institute (SRI) or Summer Research Experience (SRE).
