Though the program goes by in a flash, SRA students form lasting connections with their peers, Instructors, program leadership, and the UC Santa Barbara campus. We value our alumni community and enjoy keeping in touch, whether students are sending postcards from a study abroad program, or seeking formal recommendations for another educational opportunity. The sections below highlight common ways that alumni continue to engage with SRA.
Project Release (including college applications and publications)
In order to use or distribute research outside of UC Santa Barbara, SRA students must receive approval from the Instructor of the course they were enrolled in during the program and the Director of Academic Programs. Such activities include, but are not limited to: competitions, publications in journals or online platforms (paper and video presentation), college applications, social media etc. This information was explicitly stated in the SRA 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 SRA at least 3 weeks before the event or due date.
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.
