#UCDavis Provost’s Forum 10/9 – Michael Teitelbaum – Does the US have enough STEM workers?

Got this in an email …

Dear UC Davis Faculty, Staff, Students and Community Members,

We are delighted to announce that the 2014-2015 season of the Provost’s Forums on the Public University and the Social Good will begin on Thursday, October 9, 2014.

The first lecture of the season features Michael S. Teitelbaum, Senior Research Associate at the Labor and Worklife Program at Harvard University. Dr. Teitelbaum will discuss how the demand for and supply of STEM workers and scholars has been shaped and reshaped by public policies since World War II.

Among his previous roles, Dr. Teitelbaum has served as Vice President and Program Director at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, as a faculty member at Princeton University and the University of Oxford; and as Vice Chair and Acting Chair of the U.S. Commission on International Migration. He was educated at Reed College and at Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He is a demographer, with research interests that include the causes and consequences of very low fertility rates; the processes and implications of international migration; and patterns and trends in science and engineering labor markets in the U.S. and elsewhere.

The event will begin at 4 p.m. in the Kalmonovitz Appellate Courtroom of King Hall and will go until 5:30 p.m. It is free and open to the general public. There will be an hour-long reception with light refreshments directly following the end of the lecture.

If you are unable to attend this event, videos of all Provost’s Forums lectures are available to the public and can be found on the official Provost’s Forums website. All of the lectures from the previous two years are now available for viewing.

For more details and information on this event, please see the attached flyer, visit our website: The Provost’s Forum on the Public University and the Social Good, or contact Casey Castaldi. In addition, please forward this information to any interested parties, as all events are open to the public.

We hope to see you at this exciting event!
