OCDS Lecture Series
OCDS sponsors a quarterly seminar series. Professors are invited by the graduate student members based on his/her scientific success and status as a traditionally underrepresented minority to give a research seminar and a diversity seminar at UCLA. The addition of a diversity talk gives the speaker a unique opportunity to describe his/her journey to professorship and any unique hurdles he/she may have overcome to arrive at his/her present position. This program has brought over 40 professors to UCLA and continues to be one of the most popular seminars attended by the faculty and students.
