Dinners for Increased Scholarly Communication (DISC)

DISC student organizers

Science upperclassmen organize periodic small, informal dinners at faculty homes for first-year students interested in science. The mission of DISC is to increase communication and engagement in the sciences.

DISC tries to have at least one dinner for each College of Science department per semester and traditionally hosts these dinners on Sunday evenings. While these dinners are targeted towards freshmen College of Science intents, the program is also a great opportunity for upperclassmen to interact with professors and develop leadership skills. In particular, after having attended a dinner oneself, an upperclassman can join the leadership team and begin to organize future dinners.

For more information about DISC, please contact Mark Brahier.
