Simonich will attend 2018 HERS Institute

Higher Education Resource Services (HERS) has announced that Staci Simonich, Associate Provost for Research at Oregon State University, was selected to attend the 2018 HERS Institute at the University of Denver from June 18-June 30, 2018. Simonich was awarded a CBL (Clare Booth Luce) Scholarship that provides full tuition, accommodations, meals and travel to women in STEM higher education to attend the HERS Institute at either the University of Denver or Bryn Mawr College. Dr. Simonich will be part of the HERS Luce Program for Women in STEM Leadership.

HERS will draw upon over 40 years of providing leadership development experiences for women in higher education through its intensive residential program, the HERS Leadership Institute. A key part of the HERS Luce Program is the development of a HERS STEM Community. The goals of the community are to provide support and encouragement to women in STEM and to develop strategies for advancing a diverse cadre of women into STEM leadership roles.

Simonich will join a group of approximately 65 women leaders from across the United States as part of the HERS Institute at the University of Denver, six of whom were awarded the CBL Scholarships.
