Planning Committee

The UC San Diego World AIDS Day planning committee is actively seeking new students, faculty and staff members. Please contact Shaun Travers at stravers@ucsd.edu, if you are interested in joining the committee.

The World AIDS Day planning committee meets weekly on Thursdays during the fall from 2:00pm 2:50pm, and then in a more limited capacity in the winter and spring terms on Thursday’s from 2:00-2:50pm.

The World AIDS Day planning committee was formed in 2002 and is comprised of faculty, staff, and students at UC San Diego. A hallmark of the committee is bringing the AIDS Memorial Quilt each year to UC San Diego’s campus.

The World AIDS Day planning committee charge is to plan and implement events related to UC San Diego’s honoring of World AIDS Day, December 1st of each year. This work first was begun by the student organization Student Health Advocates (SHA) with the support of Student Health Services – Health Education in the early 1990s as the AIDS pandemic swept across the world. In 2002 the committee was officially formed to plan events from a University-wide perspective.

Committee members should demonstrated support of the UC San Diego Principles of Community; a willingness to serve on the World AIDS Day planning committee for a one-year term; the ability to serve at least 5 hours a month to attend full committee and subcommittee meetings; and sensitivity to issues of HIV/AIDS, health, human rights and diversity.

Please contact the Chair of the World AIDS Day planning committee, Shaun Travers at stravers@ucsd.edu, of you are interested in being on the committee.
