Concentration Consideration

Concentration Consideration

Dear Students,

In CNS, we rightfully spend a lot of time honing our technical and analytical science skills. As important as these skills are, scientific success also depends on social-interpersonal skills that enable people to collaborate across diverse perspectives, expertise and experience. Indeed, studies show that diverse research groups produce higher quality science. This is one reason why it is important that scientists know how to support and enhance diversity, equity and inclusivity in our communities. As we gear up for spring registration, I'd like to highlight a CNS course and concentration that will provide you with such training.

On October 19th from 5-5:30pm we are hosting an info session where you can learn about the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Concentration. Register to attend here, and a Zoom link will be provided after you register.

Whether or not you choose to do the concentration, consider taking the introductory course, NSC 209-Dialogue Across Difference: Identity, Power & Privilege. It's a two-hour course designed to empower students with terminology, critical thinking and empathy tools for engaging in productive conversations around difficult topics. This course also meets the Cultural Diversity in the U.S. Flag requirement. Students who have taken the course describe it as having provided them with a space for self-reflection and dialogue, having helped them to develop tools to build empathy and allowing them to leverage their experiences in job and internship interviews.

To learn more about students' experiences in the concentration, check out this 5-minute video or the website, or contact the concentration director, Dr. Tonia Guida.

Dr. Drew
