This one week residency by visiting speaker Prof. Dennis Culhane of the University of Pennsylvania is designed to galvanize transdisciplinary research and training in response to the homelessness crisis. In Los Angeles County, more than $1 billion in annual expenditures fund strategies to combat the homelessness and housing crisis. This is a critical moment for the UCLA research community to support policymakers with rigorous research to inform and evaluate these massive investments, including Measures H and HHH, while fulfilling our commitment to the public good.
"10 Big Questions" is both an upper division undergraduate course open to all students and a series of public conversations available to the broader community. Each class will be organized around a single question designed to elicit interdisciplinary discussion amongst a panel of UCLA scholars, artists, scientists and researchers. It seeks to foster groundbreaking connections between the arts and other disciplines.
A new symposium series to engage cross-campus collaboration at UCLA in the area of women's health scholarship and research, in particular connecting the College and the Health Sciences to solve complex problems involving women's health and wellness. This series includes both trainees and faculty and is the result of a previous strategic planning conference to promote "North and South" collaboration to improve women's health. Faculty of all disciplines can present their work-in-progress.
