    UnCommon Core | Cyberphysical Sensing Networks for Agriculture, Water, and the Environment

    Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema, 1212 E. 59th St.

    Supratik Guha, Professor, Institute for Molecular Engineering; Director, Nanoscience and Technology Division, Argonne National Laboratory
    The affordability of computing today, the increasing availability of data, and the emergence of low-power wireless networks have made this an opportune time for the emergence of cyberphysical sensor networks on geographical scales for agriculture, water, and the environment. Join Supratik Guha for a discussion of three projects at different stages of development: (1) a two-year pilot experiment with Gallo Winery and IBM that used satellite imagery data to calculate and then deliver water to vineyards; (2) the development of Thoreau, the first university-based fully subterranean sensing network for soil, which is at UChicago; and (3) a pilot project for temporal and geospatial mapping of water quality in the Godavari River in southern India. Through the descriptions of these projects, Guha will argue that a key bottleneck for ubiquitous use of these technologies lies in the development of cheap, reliable, and scalable sensing packages.

    UnCommon Core | Ending Extreme Poverty

    Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema, 1212 E. 59th St.

    Christopher Blattman, Ramalee E. Pearson Professor of Global Conflict Studies, Harris Public Policy
    One in six people in the world live in extreme poverty. More and more of the poorest are concentrated in a small number of fragile states. What hope is there of ending the worst forms of poverty? One of the big lessons of the past decade is that some programs work exceptionally well, and the reasons why have made economists rethink poverty. Poor people tend to put livestock, money, and other forms of capital to great use, working more and earning more when it’s available. Ending extreme poverty could be as simple as getting capital into as many hands as cheaply as possible.

    Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema, 1212 E. 59th St.

    Stacy Tessler Lindau, AM’02, Associate Professor, Obstetrics/Gynecology and Medicine-Geriatrics
    The most compelling health inequity is evident in large life span gaps over small geographic distances in the United States. A person living in Washington Park—the University’s neighbor to the north—can expect 69 years of life; 15 fewer than what can be expected by a person living in Chicago’s wealthier Streeterville community. University researchers believe that solutions to this injustice can be engineered using the tools of science and by working in partnership with people who know the injustices best. Stacy Lindau will describe how she and other researchers are engineering solutions to injustice affecting the health of people living in poverty and the arc of innovation and discovery in the field of population health improvement. Generously sponsored by the University of Chicago Womenʼs Board.

    Meghan Baer, Development Manager, Network for College Success

    How did Chicago’s high school graduation rate increase from 57 percent to 74 percent in just a decade? Join SSA’s Network for College Success for a conversation on what actually happened and the role NSP played to increase and sustain student outcomes throughout Chicago. Since 2006 NSP has partnered with public high schools to translate the research coming out of the UChicago Consortium on School Research into action, working with over 700 educators each year to provide professional learning communities, coaching, and intensive trainings. An additional 20,000 community members now have high school diplomas than would have if the graduation rate had not increased. The high school diploma remains highly predictive of everything we care about: future earnings, civic participation, health outcomes, and educational attainment. Learn about Chicago’s remarkable achievements in education as well as NSP’s focus on the next level of work: dramatically increasing the number of students applying to and enrolling in quality postsecondary institutions, such as UChicago.

    The University of Chicago Urban Education Institute is striving for equity and excellence in urban education, using research-based and practice-proven techniques to close the gaps faced across the field. These gaps include the knowledge gap between common beliefs about what works to improve education outcomes and deep insight into what matters most for school improvement and student success; the belief gap between pervasive stereotypes about what urban youth are capable of achieving and what we know they actually can achieve; the attainment gap between students’ college aspirations and college attainment; and the preparation gap between practitioners’ passion for education and the preparation and support they receive to succeed in urban schools. Through a panel of speakers and graphic recording techniques, learn how UEI is working to close the gaps between what urban education is, and what urban education can be.

New research demonstrates that the characteristics of a neighborhood can have a huge impact on quality of life, how wealthy you feel, and even life span. Terry Clark and Emily Talen explore the ways we can build (or modify) our communities to make life better. After all, who doesn’t want to feel seven years younger just because of where you live?

    UnCommon Core | The Small School Talent Search: A Hidden View of the 1960s at Chicago & In Need of Counterspaces: Facilitating Integration by Attending to Difference

    Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema, 1212 E. 59th St.

    Micere Keels, Associate Professor, Department of Comparative Human Development
    Thomas Heberlein, AB’67, Professor Emeritus, Department of Community and Environmental Sociology and Gaylord Institute of Environmental Studies, University of Wisconsin–Madison

    In the 1960s UChicago began to recruit talented students from rural schools through the Small School Talent Search. SSTS alumnus Thomas Heberlein has explored this effort at social change through interviews with former administrators and SSTS students to shed light on the program’s origins and recruitment and students’ campus experiences. These historical lessons are relevant today with the realization that the costs of college extend far beyond financial costs to include psychological costs in the form of stress, depression, and anxiety. In today’s universities, these psychological costs are greatest for students who do not see themselves reflected in the larger student body and faculty, are less integrated into campus life, and experience a cultural gap between their precollege and college contexts. Understanding social identity challenges to college success is of increasing importance. Micere Keels will discuss identity-neutral versus identity-conscious frameworks for student programming, and the extent to which equity is achieved by recognizing rather than ignoring social identity differences.

    International Innovation Corps Presents Transforming Global Education: Systemically and Systematically

    Saieh Hall for Economics, Room 203, 5757 S. University Ave.

    Elaine Allensworth, Lewis-Sebring Director, UChicago Consortium on School Research
    Claudia Costin, Founder, Innovations and Excellence in Education Polices, World Bank
    Maninder Kaur-Dwivedi, Joint Secretary, Government of India; Adviser, National Institution for Transforming India (NITI Aayog)
    Rohan Sandhu, AB’12 (Moderator), Senior Engagement Manager, International Innovation Corps and Tata Centre for Development, UChicago

    Over the past two decades, the world has made remarkable progress in ensuring access to learning, with about 90 percent of the world’s children enrolled in primary school. However, 250 million children around the world–particularly in developing countries–lack the most basic literacy and numeracy skills, despite attending at least four years of school. The Center for Universal Education finds that there is a 100-year gap in learning levels between developed and developing countries, and unless action is taken quickly and at scale, this gap is unlikely to be bridged. Goals have rightly shifted from just access to education, to access to quality education. Realizing these ambitions necessitates large-scale and systemic changes in how we manage and administer education. Join the International Innovation Corps panel discussion to understand how countries can implement such systemic transformations to improve learning and to shed light on a number of questions: What does systemic change mean? What are the areas that impact education quality most directly and how should we prioritize the factors that are most critical? How can we engage the various actors and stakeholders in the process? And finally, how do we administer and effectively manage this change?

In honor of Herrmann’s retirement, several of her former students have come together to establish the Diane Herrmann Internship Fund. All Alumni Weekend attendees are welcome to join us for this celebration of Diane Herrmann and her lasting legacy at the University.

    UnCommon Core | The Heroic Age: Higher Education in America and Europe around 1900

    Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema, 1212 E. 59th St.

    John W. Boyer, AM’69, PhD’75, Dean of the College and Martin A. Ryerson Distinguished Service Professor of History
    It is often said that we live in a global era of higher education, in which American universities are enjoying a kind of golden age. But our own time was preceded by an equally dynamic and interconnected era in higher education between 1880 and 1914. During this “heroic age” John Boyer shows how University leaders in Germany, Austria, and the United States navigated an environment full of paradox, characterized by new opportunities and ambitions, but also by rapidly changing demands from the societies in which they were situated. In all three cases, external transformations challenged the self-understanding of universities, creating aspirations and dilemmas that are deeply instructive for American universities today.

    UnCommon Core | Unleashing Children’s Potential: The Power of Innovative Policy

    Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema, 1212 E. 59th St.

    Ariel Kalil, Professor, Harris Public Policy; Director, Center for Human Potential and Public Policy
    Join Ariel Kalil for a presentation on her current research, which examines the historical evolution of income-based gaps in parenting behavior and children’s cognitive and noncognitive skills. Children face very different opportunities in life depending on the circumstances of their birth. Inequality begins at home, developing from myriad differences in the ways advantaged and disadvantaged parents interact with their children. To equalize the playing field, governments may need to invest in parents so parents can better invest in their children. Unfortunately, large-scale parenting interventions typically yield modest effect sizes, at best, and often do not even change children’s skills in the long term. Understanding what motivates parents to invest in their children could have a major impact on the design of policies to reduce inequality in children’s skill development.
