Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs Sue V. Rosser wrote how women leaders in the sciences have helped advance the field in an Oct. 29 guest editorial in the Chronicle of Higher Education. "A more diverse work force in the science, engineering, technology, and mathematics (STEM) fields not only allows women and other members of underrepresented groups to reap the benefits of the relatively high salaries of scientists and engineers," Rosser wrote. "It may also lead to innovations in science and engineering, since people from different backgrounds bring diverse approaches to problem-solving -- in the classroom, laboratories, and on the job -- that can improve our daily lives."
Assistant Professor of Broadcast and Electronic Communication Arts Grace Provenzano commented on the film Citizen Hearst for an Oct. 25 KGO Radio report that asked if the Hearst Corporation-produced film about the life of publisher William Randolph Hearst was actually a documentary. "If you cannot find journalistic standards (like) objectivity, with a basic premise to educate the viewers, then you may want to question the integrity of the documentary," Provenzano said.
