GPAC Update

Among our noteworthy activities: our second workshop addressing diversity and biases; a first-year/second-year field day; creation of student-faculty "coffee chats" to encourage engagement beyond the classroom; and the first pairing of a brown bag policy lunch with a corresponding service event.

Looking ahead, we hope to make progress in the spring by further developing our outreach efforts to prospective students on UT's campus and in the broader Austin community.
