Over the next two weeks, students will be receiving emails concerning faculty reviews of their progress in the program. These reviews are meant to help students focus their efforts as they progress through their degree milestones. Please be on the look out for your review and please be sure to contact your advisor to follow up about next steps.
Just a reminder, the Research Celebration is on Wednesday, May 9th from 6-8pm in the 12th floor lounge. It is mandatory for all CLAIR students.
Please register here by Saturday, May 5th.

At this year’s AERA, Dr. Margo Jackson reported that Christie-Belle Garcia gave an apt and engaging presentation, titled “Underrepresented Undergraduate Minority Students in STEM Negotiating Racial and Ethnic Microaggressions.” This presentation was based on her capstone project that she and Dr. Jackson will soon submit for publication review.
This Friday we’ll be discussing participatory and inclusive design processes with Ralph Vacca over lunch. Join us in room 3-08 at Fordham’s Law School, located at 150 West 62nd St., New York, NY 10023. Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m. with discussion to follow.
A little info about Ralph Vacca:
Ralph Vacca’s teaching and research focuses on participatory design and culture. His current work focuses on how participatory design processes can empower marginalized groups and restructure ideas about the importance of diversity and cultural inclusivity in design. He employs a mixed-methods, critical-empirical approach that combines the theories and methodologies of media studies, cultural studies, and human-computer interaction.

This annual event celebrates the progress that doctoral students in CLAIR, LLL, PES, and ELAP have made in their research in the 2017-2018 academic year. All GSE students are invited to present their research – LLL and CLAIR are required to present!
|Wed., May 9, 2018 – 6:00 – 8:00 pm (two sessions) in the Lowenstein Building, 12th Floor Lounge|
Students must register in advance using this link: https://goo.gl/forms/cn4mdS2Wlnikub1I3
- Students can present their research (dissertation, research apprenticeship project, capstone project) at any stage of progress.
- This event takes place in two one-hour blocks. All students are expected to attend for the entire two hours. One block you will present, and one block you will rotate to learn about your colleagues’ work. You will be assigned a time to present (use the Google Form to tell us about any time constraints that you have).
- You are expected to have a visual product. That can be a posterboard, a computer with a Powerpoint, a poster that is professionally made at Kinkos / Staples, etc. The choice is yours and you are not required to spend $ on your visual. There are exemplary visuals on the halls of the 10th and 11th
- This is a time to get feedback, identify additional resources, problem solve, and share your accomplishments with the GSE research community (doctoral students and faculty!)
- Email email@example.com with any questions.
CLAIR students should not register for Advanced Seminar this summer as we have moved to a three semester enrollment that starts in a Fall and ends in the successive Fall semester with no intervening Summer semester. This scheme will now allow students more time to complete their capstone as it allows for work over the summer.
