DASL provides a platform for scientists to share their research, life experiences, and support for equity, diversity, and inclusion in STEM through our lecture series. DASL at the University of Utah is partnered with the University of California – San Diego and San Francisco (UCSD and UCSF), Vanderbilt University, and SACNAS at the U of U. Together, we aim to create a hub of scientists to access resources, build community, and collaborate. Our mission is to feature the diversity here at the University of Utah by promoting science communication to bridge existing gaps with our communities through three-part workshop series on written communication, verbal communication, and science policy.
