Open communication series: Dean’s panel

Tuesday, October 11, 2022

Noon 1 p.m. PT


All members of the USC community (faculty, staff and students) are invited to attend a talk in our Open Communication Series on Tuesday, October 11 at 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. The event will feature a conversation with Dean Bay from USC Annenberg, Dean Meltzer from Keck School of Medicine, and Dean Yortsos from USC Viterbi School of Engineering. Each will discuss the importance of our unifying value of Open Communication from their unique perspectives. They will share some of the ways they bring this important value to life in their school communities here at USC.

During the conversation, moderated by executive Vice-Provost Elizabeth Graddy, you will hear an open exchange on the topic of addressing communication challenges. Deans Bay, Meltzer, and Yortsos will talk about their experiences and efforts to create environments where people feel comfortable speaking up and voicing opinions and concerns in ways that allow for respectful dialogue and debate. You will also learn about resources designed to help us all more actively listen and communicate with one another in a clear, honest, timely, and accessible manner.
