Randall Seminar Series
Since 2004, the Randall Seminar Series has featured one or two seminars per year to honor and promote accomplished women in a variety of scientific fields, providing academic enrichment to the University of Idaho. These seminars are accompanied by scheduled opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows and faculty to visit more informally with the speakers and talk about career and personal issues facing women in the sciences today.
This interdisciplinary seminar project is funded by Dr. Jan Randall, a member of the science faculty at San Francisco State University and an alumna of the University of Idaho Department of Biological Sciences. One of the most important themes in Dr. Randall’s career has been her concern for the professional development of women, and particularly women in scientific fields. Dr. Randall and her husband, Dr. Bruce MacEvoy, fund the seminar series and we thank them for their continued and generous support of the Department of Biological Sciences and the University of Idaho.
