Chemical Entanglements Undergraduate Student Group

UPDATE: CSW accepts applications on a rolling basis each quarter. The deadline for each quarter will be Friday of Week 1. More information and the most updated application can be found HERE.

The Chemical Entanglements Undergraduate Student Group works with CSW faculty, staff, and graduate students to help raise awareness of how the gendered health outcomes of chemical exposure impact people on our campus.

Benefits

UCLA undergraduate students involved in the group have the opportunity to conduct original research, participate in awareness campaigns, help shape policy recommendations, and receive mentorship from CSW faculty and staff.

Eligible students may receive Independent Study Research Credit (e.g., 99 or 199) for participating. This is a great activity to put on your resume/CV!

We are looking for UCLA undergraduate students interested in research on gender, health, chemical exposure with skills in writing, filming or storyboarding, and basic research. If you do not have these skills and are interested in building these skills, this group is a useful way to enhance yourskills and network with fellow students.

Want to get involved? Contact csw@csw.ucla.edu for more information.

Work Produced

2017-2018
Projects:
  • History of Synthetic Detergent by Sophia Sidhu
  • Hannah Bullock received UCLA IRB approval for the research study, “Fragranced Products on UCLA’s Campus,” a survey that will assess the prevalence of chemical and fragrance sensitivity among UCLA undergraduate students. The ultimate goal is to expand the survey to different populations (i.e., faculty, graduate students, staff) across UCLA and create a safe, healthy, and accessible campus for everyone.
