Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Lecture Series
6 pm to 7:30 pm
Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Old Cabell Hall Auditorium
No tickets are required for this event. Seating is first come, first served.
Michelle Alexander is a highly acclaimed civil rights lawyer, advocate, and legal scholar. In 2005, she won a Soros Justice Fellowship, which supported the writing of The New Jim Crow, and that same year she accepted a joint appointment at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University. Since its first publication, The New Jim Crow has received rave reviews and has been featured in national radio and television media outlets, including MSNBC, NPR, Bill Moyers Journal, Tavis Smiley, C-SPAN, and Washington Journal, among others.
The Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series is an initiative of UVA Engineering’s Office of Diversity and Engagement, led by Associate Dean for Diversity and Inclusion John Fitzgerald Gates. Gates is working with faculty, staff and students to redefine diversity as excellence expressing itself through the intersection of all people’s perspectives and lived experiences, rather than traditional definitions. This definition supports UVA Engineering’s mission to leverage the talents and best efforts of all in order to create and disseminate knowledge, prepare future engineering leaders, solve global challenges and make the world a better place.
“We will harness the strategic value of diversity and inclusion in UVA Engineering’s research and education programs,” Gates said, “and we will cultivate an environment in which everyone is optimally valued and supported.”
This year’s Excellence Through Diversity Distinguished Learning Series is UVA Engineering’s second. Last year, the series welcomed Dr. Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space; Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, a sociology professor at Duke University and expert on racism and human rights in America; Thomas Page McBee, a well-known transgender author; Joy DeGruy, an internationally recognized researcher, educator, author and presenter who provides insight into various cultural and ethnic groups that form the basis of contemporary American society; Daniel Beaty, an award-winning performer from New York whose works highlight people’s ability to understand each other and their possibilities; and Claude Steele, author of Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do. Videos of last year’s presentations CAN BE VIEWED HERE.
For this year’s series, other events will be added throughout the year. Event details, including dates, times and registration information, will be available at HTTPS://ENGINEERING.VIRGINIA.EDU/EVENTS and on UVA Engineering’s Facebook page, WWW.FACEBOOK.COM/UVAENGINEERING.
Using SPSS Syntax
When working in SPSS, many researchers and students only utilize the various menus provided to them, causing them to miss out on the additional functionality and efficiency that SPSS Syntax can provide. This workshop is geared to those with some experience and familiarity with SPSS that want to learn how to utilize SPSS Syntax in order to create efficient, reproducible work in SPSS. This workshop will introduce participants to the specific terminology and style involved in creating code in SPSS. Using this terminology and style, participants will learn how to import datasets, organize and label data, manipulate and create variables, and generate some basic descriptive statistics.
