Dear students and colleagues,

Now entering its seventh year, “What Matters to Me and Why,” the annual series of informal discussions with respected members of our campus community, has enjoyed remarkable success.

We would like to personally thank all who have attended our previous talks and invite those who could not attend to view recordings of past events here.

We are delighted to announce that L. Song Richardson will kick-off the first “What Matters to Me and Why” event of the 2018-19 academic year on Wednesday, Oct. 10. L. Song Richardson is Dean and Chancellor’s Professor of Law of UCI Law with joint appointments in the Department of Criminology, Law and Society and in the Department of Asian American Studies. She is the second dean of UCI Law and the only woman of color to lead a top-21 law school in the nation.

“What Matters to Me and Why” encourages reflection about values, beliefs and motivations in the lives of those who shape our university. The series explores personal journeys – choices made, difficulties encountered, commitments formed and joys revealed – with the hope that these stories will help us to understand diverse pathways in life, work and leadership. Such understandings are crucial for fortifying tolerance, strengthening bonds, and supporting the virtues that make UCI a great institution.

Oct. 31, 2018: Anne Lemnitzer, associate professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering
