Title:Collective Impact to Address Social Challenges: The Role of the Nonprofit Sector
Date:Tue, 14 May 2013 15:40 -0500
Download File:
Description:Chapin Hall Child and Family Policy Forum Collective Impact to Address Social Challenges: The Role of the Nonprofit Sector April 18, 2013   Achieving positive outcomes for young children and their families requires new thinking in how we conceptualize, address, and finance our interventions. Increasingly, teams of institutions and organizations are working together to establish a common vision and mutually reinforced objectives, rather than individual institutions or agencies focusing on a single set of goals.Within this context, the nonprofit sector has a unique opportunity to advance innovation in program planning -- through the promotion of high-quality program replication and using data to guide collective decision making. Working in partnership with public agencies, the nonprofit sector has the potential to create and test new ideas in ways that can complement and strengthen child and family policy. This forum discussed several examples of how strong leadership within the nonprofit sector is achieving these outcomes in both the United States and Australia, and identifies the challenges the sector faces moving forward.

Title:The Nora and Edward Ryerson Lecture: Quarks and the Cosmos
Date:Tue, 30 Apr 2013 17:23 -0500
Download File:
Description:Pioneering University of Chicago cosmologist Michael S. Turner focuses his remarks on “the Chicago School of Cosmology,” from Edwin Hubble and George Ellery Hale to the present. Hubble, SB 1910, PhD 1917, discovered that the universe consists of billions of galaxies and that it has been expanding since it began in a big bang. Hale was the first chairman of the University’s Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics. He also founded Yerkes Observatory, which under his leadership developed the big reflecting telescopes that are the workhorses of optical astronomy today, making discoveries from the expanding universe to planets orbiting other stars.Turning to more recent times, Turner discusses efforts that started in the 1980s at UChicago to establish the new field of particle astrophysics and cosmology. At that time, the Chicago School, consisting primarily of the late David Schramm, Edward "Rocky" Kolb, the Arthur Holly Compton Distinguished Service Professor in Astronomy and Astrophysics, and Turner, was alone in pushing this idea. “Today this idea that there are deep connections between the very big and the very small is universally accepted, has propelled the field to its current prominence, and underpins our understanding of the universe,” Turner said. “As we say at Chicago, ideas matter!”The Ryerson Lecture grew out of a 1972 bequest to the University by Nora and Edward L. Ryerson, a former chairman of the board of trustees. The lecture honors excellence in academic pursuits. A faculty committee selects the Ryerson Lecturer based on research contributions of lasting significance.

Description:Karim Nader is a professor at McGill University in the department of Psychology. As a neuroscientist he works to understand what neurobiological processes are involved in acquiring and storing memories, especially relating to fear, in order to use the study of memory reconsolidation to treat anxiety disorders. Dr. Nader made a breakthrough in the field in 1999, when he first revived and tested the obscure theory that memories do not necessarily remain stable—think Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Together with Andrew P. Hendry, Dr. Nader was nominated in 2009 for the prestigious E.W.R Steacie Memorial Fellowship. He is also the recipient of a CIHR New Investigator Award and in 2006 was named one of the Top 40 under 40. About TEDx, x = independently organized event.
