    The College of Arts and Sciences is hitting the road -- virtually! 

    Join Dean Noelle Norton and Dr. Jennifer Prairie as they "travel" to meet local Toreros from the Pacific Northwest and present on the topic of diversity, equity and inclusion as it relates to environmental science.

    Diversity in Environmental Science
    Wednesday, April 28 from 5:30-6:30 PM PST
    Zoom Room (register for link)

    Jennifer will address the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion in environmental and ocean sciences both in relation to specific efforts at USD and in the discipline more broadly. Specifically, she will discuss policies and action items that the Department of Environmental and Ocean Sciences are implementing as part of their participation in the Unlearning Racism in the Geosciences (URGE) program (https://urgeoscience.org/). To effectively and justly address climate change and train the next generation of environmental leaders, we must address how the history of environmental racism and colonialism affects our discipline. 

    In addition to Dr. Prairie's presentation, this event will feature an update on College news and advancements from Dean Norton as well as the opportunity to network and build community with alumni from the area. 

    We look forward to seeing you on the road.

    Special bonus- Rep your Torero Pride! All in attendance will receive a $20 gift card to the USD Torero Store.

    This event is co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences and the Portland and Seattle Torero Clubs.

    We're looking for sponsors!
