Event description

Description

We cordially invite you to a town hall meeting to discuss an exciting new initiative centered on you—the students in the Division of Physical Sciences. To provide flexibility for your schedule, we will host identical meetings on two alternative dates: Tue, Feb 5, and Wed, Feb 6, each from 12:00 – 1:30pm in the NSB auditorium (room 1205).

Last year, many students participated in the division’s Student Climate Survey. The upcoming meeting will discuss the results of that survey and describe a new center—being established as a result of your feedback—that will:

  • support an inclusive learning environment

  • provide professional development services to physical sciences undergraduate majors and graduate students

  • help connect students with internship opportunities in industry

  • organize alumni events and initiatives

  • offer guidance to students for developing meaningful career paths

Other town-hall topics will include:

  • Introduction of Franklin Garrett, the new center’s director, who will present an overview of the center’s mission and planned activities

  • Introduction of Associate Dean Thomas Hermann, who will outline a framework for a new student council, including representatives from student organizations, to advise the dean on future initiatives of the new center

  • Invitation to student organizations to actively partner with and participate in the center, whose framework includes a proposal to create a stable funding model, coupled with standardized requirements for organizational governance policies

Please join us and your fellow students for this opportunity to help shape our division’s new center!

PLUS…pizza and dessert will be provided! Please select which date works better for you and register so we are sure to have enough food for everyone.

We look forward to seeing you soon at one of the town hall meetings!
