CEO Forums & Other Events

CEO is on hiatus for the summer.
Our monthly forums will resume on Thursday, October 12, 2017.
Enjoy the summer!


About CEO Forums  CEO hosts lunchtime community forums on the second Thursday of each month from October through May, noon to 1:30 pm, at various locations on or near the UC Berkeley campus (location info is posted for each event below). All are welcome, no need to RSVP.

Forums are intended to bring the community together for discussion, information sharing, and skill building on issues surrounding STEM education and outreach. Past forums have focused on diversity and broadening participation in STEM, innovations in teaching and learning, informal science education, assessment of learning impacts, implementation of Next Generation Science Standards, new research in the science of teaching and learning, federal and state STEM education policy, and more. Forums may take the form of single speaker presentations, panels, or workshops. All events are informal, with ample time dedicated to discussion and idea-sharing.
