A message from #UBuffalo President Satish Tripathi on the Derek Chauvin trial verdict:

"Dear university community,

A few moments ago, we all learned the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial. This landmark trial has been viewed as a referendum on police accountability and brutality against Black and Brown Americans—and, as such, it has been closely followed by millions of people demanding the abiding structural change that is long overdue in our country.

Of course, the deep-seated hurt, sadness and anger that George Floyd’s murder evoked cannot be wiped away with the reading of a guilty verdict. It is my ardent hope that as we pause and reflect on the verdict, we consider how we can transform this moment in our collective history into a turning point for genuine reconciliation and change: change in our hearts, our minds, our practices, our systems.

As I have said before, we at UB can actively contribute to transformative change through our mission and its expression in our education, our research, scholarship and creative activities, and our engagement with one another and the many communities we serve.

Together, as a university community, we must continue working toward the ideals of social justice, recognizing that achieving them will lead to a brighter future for those who have been marginalized and disenfranchised throughout our country’s history—and for our nation as a whole."

During the social unrest of the pandemic, Raven Baxter, a #UBGSE PhD student, microbiologist and science communicator, stepped in to help create forums for and promote awareness of Black STEM professionals, educators and scientists.

She joined the unifying online efforts, known as #BlackInX movements, that arose in reaction to the Central Park birdwatching incident when a white woman called police after a Black birdwatcher asked her to follow the rules and leash her dog.

“Although the #BlackInX movements were triggered by a really unfortunate event …,” she said, “I’m glad that it brought us together to find each other and make these communities and affinity groups to support each other and talk about our shared lived experiences.”

Baxter, also known as Raven the Science Maven, was acclaimed early in the pandemic for writing, singing and producing “Wipe it Down,” a viral music video about COVID-19 safety and science.

Her innovative work throughout the past year has included founding Black In Science Communication, a network for science communicators, and Black In STEM Education, a collective of educators and researchers.

Meet Carolyn Yonda. Carolyn is a third grade teacher and alumna of #UBGSE's literacy specialist education program.

"Finding a job fresh out of school can be difficult, but I was able to make so many concrete, reliable and personal connections through this program that I hit the ground running after graduation. The program's courses taught me valuable information that I still use in my current job. Knowing how to conduct higher-level assessments while making #literacy activities fun for my students is the key to starting a successful career in this field."

When asked about the most memorable experience in the program, Carolyn recalls enrolling in exciting electives. "I took a class on creating virtual resources for your #classroom, like websites and videos, and using higher-level thinking skills to get your students engaged in fun, hands-on lessons. This class was unforgettable! It helped me step back and remember that curriculum-packed classwork is important, but taking classes that help make your #teaching memorable and engaging is equally valuable."

We are still accepting applications for #UBuffalo's literacy specialist education program for the fall 2021 term. Apply now and hit the ground running, like Carolyn: http://bit.ly/UBGSELiteracy.

Meet Rachel Seah. Rachel is an alumna of #UBGSE’s higher education and student affairs master's program and now an undergraduate recruitment specialist at San Francisco State University.

“When I first began the program, I had no idea how many issues and trends were occurring in the field,” Rachel remembers. “But, as I continued to learn in class and gain experience in my assistantships and internships, I felt like I was pulling back the curtain to what the field is like.”

What’s Rachel’s advice for anyone considering #UBuffalo’s higher education master’s program? “Continue to learn. There are multiple chances to learn about the field, yourself and others. You'll learn about underrepresented student populations and their barriers, and you'll be the driving force to break the barriers.”

When her hair salon adapted to pandemic restrictions this past summer, Charice Thompson, BA ’18, knew she could use extra help to finish her master’s degree in information and library science. She took advantage of the lull in business to search for scholarship notices. She won the two that she applied for—along with a GSE spring tuition waiver based on her academic merit.

As a recipient of a New York Library Association Dewey Scholarship and the inaugural winner of the Drs. Henry J. and Bonita R. Durand Scholarship for graduate students facing financial obstacles, she is grateful for the support and recognition.

“It means a lot to me,” Thompson said. “It’s more important right now because of the pandemic … A good thing after all that’s happened in the last year.”

Lately, as she considers career possibilities after graduation, Thompson aims to find a way to use her new research savvy, cultivated in part during a practicum in UB’s law library. She is excited about the possibilities that lie ahead—sharing her information science expertise and helping Black entrepreneurs navigate business obstacles.

“It’s just important to be informed and know what the resources are,” Thompson said. “How can I contribute to informing my community in a way that I wasn’t informed?”

The #UBGSE spring symposium about confronting, and abolishing, racism in education drew 650 people and 200 #UBuffalo students to hear five authors, scholars and professors, including Christopher Emdin, a Columbia University Teachers College associate professor and author of “Urban Science Education for the Hip-hop Generation,” and the New York Times’ Bestseller, “For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood and the Rest of Y’all Too.”

The two-day virtual gathering “Creating the Beloved Community,” was organized Terri N. Watson, a visiting scholar with the UB Center for Diversity Innovation and associate professor of educational leadership at the City College of New York. She named the symposium for Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of a “beloved community” that evolves when “a new relationship comes into being between the oppressed and the oppressor.”

“Schools must be loving spaces for all children,” Watson said. “We must practice love and provide all students with the skills that will enable them to reach their dreams. I hope this symposium inspires us.”

The virtual experience, which included breakout conversation sessions with students after each talk, was its own lesson in community, in spite of social distancing, said Watson.

“It was nice to come together to work on the beloved community with the community at UB,” said Watson. “I was able to feel at home because the community embraced me.”

Meet Samantha Schichtel-Greenwood. Sam is an alumna of #UBGSE’s educational psychology and quantitative methods master's program. She also works in #UBuffalo's Office of Institutional Analysis as an assistant for institutional research, where she gets to use the skills she learned in the program every day.

Sam explains, "I frequently use both the hard and soft skills I learned in the EPQM program. On the one hand, I use knowledge from courses like CEP 527 – Analysis of Large-Scale Databases almost every day when querying the large body of information that the university collects. On the other hand, I also use different problem-solving methods to think about the world. When faced with a project (such as building a Tableau dashboard to convey information to university constituents), I'm often surprised by how much I use the patterns of logic for statistical hypothesis testing and understanding cognitive psychology. These three things don't seem related on the surface, but the EPQM coursework asks you to think through problems in a way that's unique and useful in a lot of contexts."

The priority application deadline for the EPQM master's program is one week away! ⌛ Submit your application before April 1 to take the next step in your academic and career journey.
