ILS is hosting an Invitation to be Heard call via Zoom on Thursday, June 18, 2020, at 1 p.m. EST. There is no set agenda for this meeting but there is a clear goal: Primarily, we wish to hear from you and learn from you regarding graduate students’ perspectives on inequalities facing minority communities and how the Integrated Life Sciences program and the Graduate School at UGA can help and do better. The faculty and administration are calling this meeting not to talk, but to listen, and all life science graduate students are invited to attend. If you did not receive a link to the Zoom room via email, please email [email protected] and it will be sent to you for your participation.
