Committees

Purpose:

The primary mission of this committee is to improve the postdoctoral experience at Yale through the development and promotion of sound postdoctoral mentoring practices. The committee also serves as a valuable resource to advise my office on postdoctoral training, career development, and other factors that have the potential to enhance postdoctoral life at the University.  I am encouraged by the progress the committee has made since it was first convened, and look forward to it continuing this important work during the upcoming year.

The overall mission of YCGS is to create geospatial knowledge that solves humanity’s most pressing challenges.  
We will achieve our mission by: 
    - Enabling transformative research
    - Convening uncommon connections among individuals, organizations, and networks
    - Empowering action to create positive outcomes for people and the Planet.  
 
Given the intrinsically interdisciplinary nature of the center’s mission, its success depends upon the contributions and support of a diverse Advisory Committee.  I anticipate that the Advisory Committee will meet once or twice each semester.

Purpose:
The committee will develop and propose an intellectual vision for a new lab complex on the 420 Temple St site (west side of Temple St south of Trumbull). This building will be the second of several that will be reimagined on lower Hillhouse Avenue, where the broader goal is to reinvent the SEAS campus. Significantly, this part of the overall SEAS campus will visibly project the identity, establish cultural norms, and propel community aspects of the new SEAS Campus.  This structure will adjoin a green space, using the area bordered by the new building and Hillhouse Avenue as an open and inviting outdoor engagement space that connects all elements of the SEAS Campus and its community.  
 
The East Complex Temple Phase building will house faculty from multiple SEAS departments. The committee should plan for the future, considering both the potential evolution of research needs over the next thirty-years and reserving space for future needs, including incremental faculty hires.
 
Key responsibilities of each member of the committee include:
 
1.Planning: Partner closely with Yale Facilities and the architect to aid in designing spaces that will meet programmatic needs of faculty as well as offer common “SEAS Space” for the growing SEAS community.
 
2.Process: Disseminate information to each member’s respective department and other stakeholders regarding the project’s progress, gather feedback from colleagues as plans develop, and represent the collective group’s interests for the duration of the project.
 
Deliverables:
The East Complex Temple Phase Committee will be guided by a planning consultant to develop the building’s programming and identify specific uses. That programming will detail the number, types, and sizes of spaces, as well as the qualities and technical attributes of the spaces. Special attention will be devoted to detailing the “SEAS Space” (and use) within the building. Once approved by Yale, this information will be provided to the selected design team to initiate and complete the Architectural Design of the East Complex Temple Phase project.
 
During the design phase, the East Complex Temple Phase Committee will monitor the progress of the selected design team, provide additional direction as needed, and participate in periodic design reviews.  The Committee will coordinate closely with SEAS leadership during this period.
 
In conjunction with the delivery of the Architectural Design of the East Complex Temple Phase building by the contracted architect, this committee will prepare a summary document that details how the proposed building supports the 2021 SEAS Strategic Vision, achieves the goal of transcending departments, incorporates the concept of “SEAS Space,” and addresses the potential evolution of research needs.

Purpose:
The Steering Committee will serve an important oversight role in YCNCC governance. Members will advise the YCNCC Co-Directors, David Bercovici and Liza Comita; provide guidance on Institute strategies and scientific initiatives; help steward Institute resources; interface with internal and external stakeholders; receive updates on plans and progress; provide feedback and propose ideas; and partner on faculty hiring, all consistent with the goals of the Center as articulated by the donor in their historic gift. Given the intrinsically interdisciplinary nature of the Center’s mission, its success depends upon the contributions and support of a diverse Steering Committee. In steady state, I anticipate that the Steering Committee will meet a few times each semester. More frequent meetings may initially be necessary as the Yale Center for Natural Carbon Capture ramps up and initiates its activities.
