“Addressing Systemic Structural Problems in STEM”

Join the Office of the Provost Monday, Nov. 2, from 1 to 2:30 p.m., for an expert panel focused on highlighting approaches and strategies that can help Case Western Reserve University address systemic structural problems in the STEM disciplines.

Panelists will be:

  • Alison K. Hall, associate dean for research workforce development at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences at George Washington University;
  • Clifton Poodry, courtesy professor at University of Oregon; and
  • Michael F. Summers, the Robert E. Meyerhoff Chair for Excellence in Research and Mentoring, Distinguished University Professor at University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

Provost and Executive Vice President Ben Vinson III will moderate the discussion.

Panelist presentations will be followed by a robust question and answer period via live video and the Zoom chat feature. The intent of this session is to help CWRU realize Pathway 4 of its Think Big strategic plan to build a respectful, diverse and effective university community and become a campus that truly reflects its students, city, and country.

While the event is targeted toward campus leadership—including deans and chairs, as well as faculty who serve on search committees and mentoring committees—any member of the campus community is welcome to attend.

Registration is requested.
