Meetings and Events

winter meeting hands raised


Mark your calendar for the Fall Parent Meeting on November 17 at 11 a.m. in HUB 302. Registration will open in October, and it will include a ticket to the men's basketball game that same day. 


Our faculty presenter will be Dr. Rachel Wu, Assistant Professor of Psychology and CALLA Lab Director.

Dr. Rachel Wu received her Ph.D. from the University of London (2011), and has four other degrees, including a Diploma in Fine Art from Middlesex University (2011). Her research investigates aspects of how infants and children learn, and whether these aspects can be applied to adult learning to maximize cognitive growth during adulthood. Dr. Wu was recently honored by a Rising Star Award from the Association for Psychological Science, one of the largest associations for psychological research. She was in a rock band as a violinist for 7 years (2003-2010), and also is a professional artist (painting and sculpting). Every few years, she learns to master new skills to gain a better understanding of the difficulties in being an adult learner. Her editorial on her experiences was recently published in Scientific American.
