UC Santa Cruz Summer Session recently won four awards at the 2017 Western Association of Summer Session Administrators (WASSA) conference held in Golden, Colo.

Monica Parikh, director of Summer Session, said she was overjoyed by the recognition.

“I knew our team was doing terrific work providing students with courses they need, and supporting their success and engagement,” she said. “But to win awards from our peers—it’s exceptional.”
