SGA TOWN HALL: Does Barnard need science?

Written by

James-Room, Barnard Hall, 4th floor

Discuss the Science Requirement! Like it? Love it? Gotta have it? Or, just hate it?

*Last chance to win preview tour of the Diana*n204394002532_2896

The Student Government Association (SGA) is planning for a town hall on the science requirement in the Nine Ways of Knowing. We’re excited to finally move forward with such an important issue and hope that this event will provide a wonderful opportunity for faculty members and students to come together and discuss policies at Barnard that affect the community at large. We invite all students to discuss the future of the science requirement, what their experience has been with the requirement, and how we can improve policy on it for the future. This is your chance to voice your opinions!

Barnard Environmental Science Professor, Stephanie Pfirman, will open the conversation with a presentation on “how much science you need to know to be a good citizen of our world.” She will also discuss her findings on what employers are looking for science knowledge-wise in applicants with non-health or research backgrounds as well.

There will be FREE CATERED DINNER.

*We are raffling one more space for the Diana preview tour (taking place 12/4) for all attendees*
