In Education Week commentary, UW-Madison's Hess urges scholars to make voices heard

UW-Madison's Diana Hess authored a commentary for Education Week that is headlined, "The Problem With Calling Scholars 'Too Political.' " Hess is dean of the School of Education and the Karen A. Falk Distinguished Chair of Education. In the column, Hess writes about the importance of education scholars speaking up and participating in public debates about their issues of expertise. She frames partaking in political debate as a responsibility and a way to give back to the community and the universities that support them.

The work of UW-Madison’s Simon Goldberg was recently featured by the University of California, Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center in its annual list of the "Top 10 Insights from the Science of a Meaningful Life in 2017." The results from Goldberg’s paper, "Mindfulness-based interventions for psychiatric disorders," stood out among the hundreds of studies that were on this center’s radar. Goldberg's paper was a major research review of 142 non-overlapping studies that found mindfulness-based interventions hold promise as evidence-based treatments for psychiatric disorders, but not for everyone or for every condition. Goldberg recently completed his Ph.D. with UW-Madison’s Department of Counseling Psychology and will be joining that department as an assistant professor in August.
