Coast to Coast Connections
a hybrid/virtual student conference hosted by University at Albany & University of California, Davis
This 2023 student conference is a joint initiative between UAlbany and UC Davis focused on the theme of connection in all its significations.
ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
The conference's keynote speaker will be Claire Donato. Click the link above to learn more about her and her talk.
This one-day conference is uniquely held in hybrid/virtual format: the UAlbany and UC Davis campuses will each meet in-person respectively for the event, then connect virtually over Discord with the other institution for panels, talks from our keynote speakers, and open discussion.
Those who attend physically at either the UAlbany or UC Davis campus (specific locations to be announced by March) will have the opportunity at each panel to interact and communicate with the other campus, as well as all virtual participants, through Discord on large projectors or screens (dependent on the campus/room).
We are incredibly grateful to the teams and individuals working to make the Coast to Coast Connections Conference possible.
