We are delighted to announce that the first lecture of the 2017-18 season of the UC Davis Forums on the Public University and Social Good will take place on Thursday, October 26th.
The lecture is titled “Campus Climate, Inclusive Science, and Institutional Change.” In her lecture, Dr. Hurtado will discuss recent developments in campus climate and and a new model of inclusive science that integrates diversity in undergraduate education and faculty development. She will provide insights from research on campus climate, current work on investments in diversifying the scientific workforce, and models of institutional change from recent case studies of exemplar institutions that reduce disparities and improve student success in STEM fields.
The event will take place in the Multipurpose Room in the Student Community Center from 3 to 4:30 p.m. with a reception to follow until 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
