PhD+: PhDs in Leadership Positions at UCSC 

May 4, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm  |  Humanities 1, Room 210

Foundational Labor: PhDs in Leadership Positions at UCSC 

Are you interested in learning more about the work of PhDs who are actively reimagining pedagogy and student support at UC Santa Cruz? This session will feature two PhDs who are currently employing their research and teaching experience in a variety of interrelated ways, including program development, project management, and mentorship, all of which are vital to the University’s mission and its commitment to equitably serving undergraduate students and graduate student-instructors. Kendra Dority is Assistant Director of the UCSC Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning (CITL), and Zia Isola is Director of the UCSC Genomics Institute Office of Diversity Programs, Co-Director of the UCSC Bridge to Doctorate Program (NSF-LSAMP), and Staff Advisor for UCSC Women in Science & Engineering (WISE). Participants will have an opportunity to hear about the day-to-day experience of working in two campus positions, as well as how the PhD has influenced or helped reimagine their approach to their work.
