What is UCosmic?
UC’s online system manages all the ways in which the faculty, staff, and students are connected internationally.
Give me an example.
Faculty enter projects, activities, research, scholarship, and recognition that has an international component – be it an international collaboration, an international award, an international performance, etc.
What other kinds of data are included?
- International degrees held by faculty,
- Student organizations and activities with an international focus,
- UC’s international collaboration and activity agreements,
- Countries and institutions where international students are coming from
- Contact and profile information on regional companies that have an international component and with whom UC has a connection
- Identification, location, and activity of UC’s international alumni
How does UCosmic benefit me?
You will be able to:
- Network to find UC colleagues with related activities, research or scholarship
- Connect with UC personnel with degrees from international institutions where you may wish to form an activity
- Identify connections you may use to leverage your own work
- Raise your visibility in search engine results
- Find collaborative agreements already in place with international institutions
