RF Webinar on NSF PIRE Program

November 30 (12 noon – 1pm), NSF Partnerships for International Research and Education (PIRE) Grants

Overview of Webinar: International engagement is increasingly critical to keeping the U.S. globally competitive at the frontiers of knowledge. The PIRE program supports a set of cutting-edge interdisciplinary projects focused on use-inspired research on climate change and/or clean energy in which advances require international collaboration. PIRE projects support team readiness to grow into prominent enduring international hubs of research excellence that advance knowledge, empower communities, and generate discovery and innovative technological solutions at a global scale. PIRE support is intended to scale up and expand research in all science and engineering disciplines and in interdisciplinary areas by enhancing and building partnerships beyond the PIRE funding period and catalyzing readiness to grow to center level activity. PIRE promotes cooperation among scientists and engineers from all nations and enables research at the leading edge of science and engineering by facilitating partnerships with others nationally and internationally, by educating and preparing a diverse, world-class STEM workforce, and by fostering institutional capacity for international collaboration. The PIRE projects should enhance diversity, equity and inclusion in science and engineering in both research and education.

Targeted Audience: CUNY Science and Engineering faculty

Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY-APPS and Masahiro Kawaji, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, CCNY

ASRC Communicating Your Science Event Series

Applied Science: A Conversation about STEM Higher Education & Science Communication With Malcolm Gladwell 


Join us on December 2, 2022 at 2 p.m. for a special Communicating Your Science event with Malcolm Gladwell, New York Times best-selling author, social commentator and host of the podcast Revisionist History, where he’ll discuss the role that public higher education institutions can play in communicating science and ensuring that STEM education and research data are available and accessible to all. 
 
Malcolm Gladwell’s recently released audio book, I Hate the Ivy League: Riffs and Rants on Elite Education, is a collection of the writer’s podcast episodes on higher education. 
 
During this insightful conversation Gladwell and CUNY Graduate Center Dean for the Sciences Josh Brumberg will discuss: 

  • The role public higher education institutions have in making science more accessible and valuable to the public 
  • How we can make STEM education and careers more accessible to underrepresented communities 
  • How students and faculty at public higher education institutions should be thinking about their roles as science communicators and facilitators of STEM education access 
  • What being a reporter revealed about communicating with the public 

Please register to attend. There will be time for Q&A.
