"I see 'DEIS Impact as not only being extremely informative - though that is a super important aspect - but I see it as a chance to generate quality discourse and discussion about these issues, while also motivating students, faculty, and the larger campus community to pursue these issues further. I have thoroughly enjoyed the events I have attended over the past few years.” -Brad Burns. '15, 'DEIS Impacter
