5-7 PM, Olpin Union Ballroom | The annual research symposium features posters highlighting the exciting work undertaken by GCSC-affiliated students. The symposium is open to the public.
Before coming to the Department of Geology and Geophysics to study hydrology as a GCSC Fellow, Jory Lerback worked as a data analyst at the American Geophysical Union. Read about her findings of gender imbalance in peer review, and her efforts to champion a safe, inclusive, and diverse environment in her college. @theU article here.
Students in the Global Changes and Society course drew on their experience in this interdisciplinary course, and have published a paper on project-based, interdisciplinary training in the Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management.
“How society responds to increasing vulnerability and change will be a defining characteristic of the 21st century. Training students to address these multidisciplinary challenges is a critical component of the educational process…Thus, learning to work within an interdisciplinary framework is an essential skill for future professionals.”1
