STARS Monthly Faculty Student Dinner Series

STARS Monthly Faculty-Student Dinner Series

Traditionally the STARS Programs do not support students during their sophomore year. Many STARS Summer students stated that after an exciting summer of research, sophomore year was a “letdown” without any STARS component to engage their scientific curiosities. To remedy this problem, Dean Chang initiated a monthly faculty-student dinner series where a distinguished group of women and URM Yale scientists ate dinner in the Ezra Stiles Fellows Lounge with a small group of STARS students. Faculty gave a talk on his/her scientific journey, adversities overcame, and current research projects. The students loved hearing these personal stories and many made individual connections with these faculty members. The list of 2017-2018 speakers is below:
