Discussions Together


As a learning community, we hold recurring events that bring people together to explore big challenges and our role in addressing those challenges, as an active and engaged STEM community. We invite authors, experts and thought leaders to campus for conversations relevant to both science and identity. Our aim is to lift up stories and context from our disciplines to help advance a climate where all of our members feel safe, supported and seen—the essence of belonging.
