Speaker: Freeman Hrabowski III, President, University of Maryland Baltimore County. Abstract: In the light of increasingly competitive global markets and rapid technological and demographic changes at home, it is imperative that America produce many more well prepared scientists and engineers from all backgrounds. Freeman Hrabowski has served as the Principal Investigator on his university's National Science Foundation ADVANCE grant, and he chaired the National Academies Committee that recently produced the report, "Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation: America's Science and Technology Talent at the Crossroads." For decades a champion of expanding STEM participation by students from all backgrounds, Hrabowski will address best practices and lessons learned in STEM education, particularly as they relate to the transformation of institutional cultures.`
