A Conversation with MCS: The Undergraduate Perspective, Feb. 9

By Jocelyn Duffy

When: Thursday, February 9, 4:30-6 p.m.
Where: Rangos Ballroom, Cohon University Center

Undergraduate Student RSVP
Faculty RSVP

This will be the first of hopefully many conversations where students can speak freely and ask representatives of the Mellon College of Science anything. All MCS undergraduate students and faculty are encouraged to attend.

While our primary charge at MCS is to prepare our students for their futures, we want to make sure that we are doing that in an environment where students feel safe and supported. This conversation is an opportunity for MCS undergraduate students to tell the college what their concerns are — about the college, university and the world we are living in — and for faculty and administrators to listen to and understand these concerns.

The conversation will begin with small groups of students and faculty discussing the issues that matter most to the students in each group. The groups will develop questions that they can ask a panel that will include Dean Rebecca Doerge, Associate Dean Maggie Braun, Assistant Deans William Alba and Ken Hovis, and Student Affairs representative Lucas Christain.

Students who cannot attend or who want to submit a question or topic for discussion confidentially can do so using the student RSVP form. No names or email addresses will be recorded using this form. 

Faculty who would like to volunteer to lead a small group discussion at the beginning of the event can do so using the faculty RSVP form
