Georgia College faculty members of the College of Arts & Sciences have been selected to discuss their successful strategies for sustaining science programs during the 2011 Network for Academic Renewal Conference in March.
Hosted by the Association of American College and Universities (AAC&U) and Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL), this year’s event is themed “Engaged STEM Learning: From Promising to Pervasive Practices.”
“Our college is thrilled,” said Dr. Rosalie Richards, Kaolin Endowed Chair in Science and director of the Science Education Center.
“This particular conference is a first-time appearance for the College of Arts & Sciences, so we’re eager to share how our initiative, Science to Serve, has flourished at the university and in the community.”
Richards will coordinate a panel discussion about sustaining science interests on the collegiate level alongside colleagues Dr. Julia Metzker, Dr. Caralyn Zehnder and Dr. Ellen France.
