Faculty Director

Professor Bradley Hyman

Dr. Bradley HymanDr. Brad Hyman joined the UCR Biology Department faculty in 1983, and has been active in our local Riverside Unified School District (RUSD) schools since that time. He has served as a member of School Site Councils at Emerson Elementary School, University Heights Middle School, and John W. North High School. Dr. Hyman was an active member of the team that led to WASC re-accreditation for John W. North High School. During the RUSD Measure B school bond vote, he served as director of the Emerson-University Heights-John W. North cluster “get-out-the-vote” campaign, and now is Vice Chair of the Citizen’s Oversight Committee that oversees appropriate dispersal of Measure B funds. He holds an invitational membership on the Superintendent’s RUSD Key Communicators Network. Dr. Hyman judges local science fairs and appears before the RUSD District’s Board of Trustees to express opinions regarding pending boundary issues and curricular decisions regarding mathematics/science content. One of Dr. Hyman’s favorite off-campus activities is to return each Spring to John W. North High School as an evaluator for their Senior Exhibition Day. He is an active member of UCR’s Copernicus Project where he is helping to write curricula for science teacher credentialing and also developed an enrichment workshop entitled “A Living Punnet Square” as part of the 2005 Copernicus Summer Science Institute for Biology Teachers. This exercise became an “In-Service Day” workshop for all RUSD Biology Teachers and is also being adopted for teacher training sessions in surrounding school districts.
