As scholars at UMBC, you have been immersed in an environment that carries a vision for social responsibility. UMBC's vision includes being "known for integrating research, teaching and learning, and civic engagement so that each advances the others for the benefit of society." You will carry this vision forward, locally, nationally, and internationally. Have you thought about how to engage globally? Let's consider ways that you can share your research internationally, and how to address global challenges.
On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, Dr. Darryl Williams, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education, Tufts School of Engineering will come to UMBC to have a conversation with undergraduate and graduate students about sharing research on a global level. His discussion, "Giving your research a global platform" will include conversations about his experiences with sharing research in Panama, the United Arab Emirates, Italy, and other countries. Dr. Williams is Research Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Tufts University, and he explores the effects of nanostructured materials on biological systems. Dr. Williams also serves as the Director for Tufts' Center for STEM Diversity, and the current President of the national Minorities in Engineering Division (MIND) for the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE). Prior to coming to Tufts, Dr. Williams was a program officer at the National Science Foundation.
