UCSB faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students discuss what we have learned over the last six years from research about what worked in stimulating achievement among Black children and what challenges African American learners face. Keynote speakers Na'ilah Suad Nasir from UC Berkeley and Tyrone Howard from UCLA. Moderated by UC Santa Barbara Professor Jeffrey Stewart.

Dr. Diego Miralles, the charismatic Global Head of Innovation for Johnson & Johnson's Janssen Pharmaceuticals, inspires students from San Diego's Kearny High School with his story of leaving a comfortable life in Argentina, sacrificing to get ahead in America, discovering a drug to suppress HIV, and ultimately defining success by the positive influence he and others have on the people around them. This presentation is the first of The STEAM Leadership Series, featuring speakers in conversation with students about embracing creativity in learning. Lead sponsors for The STEAM Leadership Series include Intellectual Capital, Kids Eco Club, the San Diego Unified School District and the Education Synergy Alliance.

Carol Christ, Director for the Center for Studies in Higher Education, talks with Jamie Merisotis on his new book, America Needs Talent. Merisotis explains that to usher in a new era of innovation and success, deliberate choices must be made by government, the private sector, education, and individuals to grow talent in America. In America Needs Talent, Merisotis proposes bold ideas to successfully deploy the world's most talented people-from rethinking higher education to transforming immigration laws, revitalizing urban hubs, and encouraging private sector innovation. Recorded on 10/02/2015.
