Cultivating Diversity: Women of Color as Research Scholars


What is research and what role does it play in effecting social change? What does it mean to be a professor and researcher, particularly as a woman of color? Why should women get involved in research as undergraduates and graduate students?
Our Spring Women's Research Forum will explore opportunities and challenges facing researchers when addressing social issues. Professors Billie Gastic and Charleen Brantley and graduate student Susan Choy will discuss various
ways that students can make a difference through research. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome.



A fantastic night celebrating women's leadership in the media and in popular culture.  

Special guests include Meryl Streep, Jill Scott, Sheryl WuDunn, Kiran Bedi, Megan Doneman, and Arthur Sulzberger, Jr.
