What is Practicum?
The Practicum Program is an initiative of the Student Promoted Access Center for Education and Service that serves as an opportunity to engage undergraduates with the diverse community within the university and in the greater San Diego region. The SPACES Practicum is designed to serve the mission statement of empowering students and developing student empowerment.
Through student-led lectures and/or group discussions students will critically examine the issues facing underrepresented students, gain an understanding of the student movement at UCSD, and most importantly- learn how to take action and make positive change. Emphasis will be placed on refining the knowledge and skills needed to carry out effective outreach and retention projects which include but are not limited to structural/institutional frameworks of racism/discrimination, inequities in education, basic counseling skills, and awareness of resources.

If anyone is interested in enrolling, they must contact the SPACES practicum email in order to pick up the registration form for the class. Practicum is an upper division course so students must have completed 90 units or more by the end of this quarter (Fall 2014) in order to apply. However, students may request permission from their college academic advisor department to enroll in the class even if they have not completed 90 units. Students must still pick up the enrollment form from me before proceeding through this process.

As we explore and try to find our “place(s)” in society and our communities where we can exist in the midst of the margins, borders, boundaries, and beyond, we may find ourselves trying to discover and make sense of who we are — the self . Often times, in this process, we are misplaced – put in the wrong place and lost temporarily, we are displaced – forced to move out of our comfort zones, and we are replaced- substituted and no longer given a place. As these processes occur and take shape; this can lead to a detachment from the self as we are thrown in various directions and found at various intervals, rather than all together. Join us in navigating, placing, and piecing together the scattered.
