Become a Sponsor for El Día 2020!

New this year: Registration is free!

Participation for everyone--current and prospective students, alumni, faculty, staff, campus colleagues, and the public--is free this year!

HASSA, the department's student association and organizers of El Día 2020, have been working hard this year to secure funding to help reduce the financial barrier--registration fee--for all attendees, but especially students. HASSA has applied for grants that will help defray some of our expenses this year, such as Student Union room reservations, keynote speaker travel and honorarium expenses, and printed programs, which will make this event more accessible for everyone. More updates on this as grant participants are confirmed!

El Día del Agua y La Atmósfera is not just another research symposium! 

It's a day when the best and brightest students from the department share their work, excitement, and enthusiasm with you, members of the profession and the wider community. 

For some, it's the first opportunity for making a public presentation to peers and members of the public.  For others, it represents the culmination of years of study and research. 

For all, it signifies their inclusion in a highly regarded profession. Your encouragement and your recognition matter.

Sponsorship helps us grow!

To grow our student participation, we seek sponsors at all levels to help us keep this event free:
