The Coffee with a Prof program encourages undergraduate students to meet with faculty members in a casual setting.

CWAP

Do you want to get to get to know your current professor or graduate teaching assistant (TA) outside of the classroom? Are you interested in learning more about your class or their areas of expertise? The Coffee with a Professor program is a great way to connect to the UCSD faculty and graduate TA in an informal setting. The best part is that it’s FREE for Warren College students and their current faculty guest! Coffee with a Prof is sponsored by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and College Student Affairs Offices.

See what students and faculty are saying about this program

"This was a great way to meet with my Professor outside of office hours! I'm grateful he was able to take time out of his busy schedule to meet with me. I definitely recommend Coffee-with-a-Prof to any student who wants to talk to his/her professor outside of the traditional, academic setting!"
- Warren College Student

"The students see the 'coffee' as a way to ask for some face time with professors - otherwise, they may feel they're taking their time unfairly - I felt like I helped [the student I met with] quite a bit in the hour or so that we met."
- UCSD Faculty
