Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

Our “What Matters to Me and Why” series of informal discussions with respected members of our faculty continues to build momentum. Our premiere conversations with University Professor Francisco J. Ayala and physics Professor Clare Yu have generated favorable reviews from students, faculty and staff. For those who attended, thank you for your participation and feedback. We’re heartened by your enthusiastic response. For those who could not attend, videos of the past talks can be viewed here.

“What Matters to Me and Why” encourages reflection about values, beliefs and motivations in the lives of those who shape our university. We will explore personal journeys – choices made, difficulties encountered, commitments grasped and joys revealed – with the hope that these stories will strengthen our bonds and fortify the virtues that make UC Irvine a great institution.

The series continues Jan. 16 with Hung Fan, professor of virology and molecular biology in the School of Biological Sciences, and director of the Cancer Research Institute. Professor Fan investigates retroviruses to understand how they replicate and cause cancer. His work has appeared in numerous publications, and he is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the American Academy of Microbiology.

The series continues each month, except for December and June, throughout the academic year. Please check the website or posters on campus for future speakers.

We encourage you to participate and enjoy the unique perspectives of those who have made lasting contributions to the UCI family.
