The six weeks of RMP may fly by, but the connections students form with their peers, mentor, program leadership, and UC Santa Barbara itself withstand the test of time. We value our alumni community and cherish opportunities to stay in touch, whether a student is seeking support as they navigate the next steps in their educational journey, or simply hoping to share ideas and conversation over a cup of coffee. The sections below highlight common ways that alumni continue to engage with RMP.
Project Release (Including college applications)
In order to use or distribute research outside of UC Santa Barbara, RMP students must receive approval from the Mentor and Principal Investigator of the project, and the Director of Academic Programs. Such activities include, but are not limited to: competitions, publication to journals or online platforms (paper and video presentation), college applications, etc. This information was explicitly stated in the RMP Statement of Understanding. Failure to receive proper permission violates ethical standards in the research community and is subject to legal action.
All consent requests must be submitted to RMP at least 3 weeks before the event or due date.
Note that students are required to submit one release request per actionable instance of project use; in other words, you should be able to describe concretely and in detail the purpose of each release request.
