Leading and Breaking Barriers in Research, Higher Education and Industry

Chancellor Gary S. May and his wife, LeShelle May, will address "“Breaking Barriers in a Big Way in Engineering, Industry and Higher Ed” — the first program in a new series aimed at promoting participation in undergraduate research. Speakers from academia and industry will share stories and practices of leadership innovation in STEM fields to inspire students to discover research, and to overturn stereotypes and misperceptions about what research is and who can participate in it. Series funded by a UC Davis Diversity and Inclusion Innovation Grant.

Gary May joined UC Davis on Aug. 1 as the university’s seventh chancellor, after a career of nearly three decades at the Georgia Institute of Technology, as a faculty member in electrical and computer engineering, and, for six years before coming to UC Davis, dean of the College of Engineering. LeShelle May is a systems/software developer at CNN, the recipient of a Technology & Engineering Emmy and two Computerworld Smithsonian awards. As a student at Boston University, she served as chapter president of the National Society of Black Engineers.
