Student Led Broader Impacts Group

Broad Impacts is ready for the new semester and raring to go!

On Wednesday September 21st, Dr. Kathie Olsen, a former deputy director of the National Science Foundation, will give the Graduate Program in Neuroscience colloquium on "Understanding Science Policy" (12pm, 2-137 Jackson Hall). Then, at 3:30pm, she will lead a Broad Impacts discussion about the challenges faced by women in science, which will be held in MCB 2-120.
