Seed funding from the UC Office of the President provided support for first year priorities and projects. Our currently funded projects from the Office of the Chancellor and Provost are included below:
Promoting the availability of a free, healthy alternative to sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs), namely tap water, is a critical component of reducing consumption of unhealthy alternatives like drinks with added sugar.
Since 2016, Davis Period and #FreethePeriod, along with the Menstrual Equity Task Force, have been working to combat Period Poverty. We believe menstrual hygiene products are a basic necessity just like soap or toilet paper, and that no student should have to sacrifice education due to lack of access.
A collaborative and proactive approach by Chicanx Studies Faculty/Staff, Aggie Compass, and Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer, this project aims to support the retention and success of Chicanx/Latinx students by providing greater awareness and direct referrals to basic needs resources.
The Community Healing Through Creative Art Expressions Groups project will promote emotional well-being through creative art expressions for currently or formerly undocumented students on campus and students from mixed immigration status families.
The Health TEAM Lab provides UC Davis students, staff, and faculty a place to: learn about health literacy, receive standardized health metric testing/reporting, and communicate with a support group to help facilitate healthy behavior changes.
