Congratulations to Dr. Dawn Ward on her promotion to Associate Professor of Chemistry!  Dr. Ward's promotion was based on her teaching of organic chemistry, her service on various committees at SU and her research accomplishments.  This exciting news was announced at the 2016 Faculty Recognition Dinner.  

Warm congratulations to Mrs. Diane Payne on winning the Rose Dawson Excellence in Teaching Award for 2016!  Mrs. Payne was nominated by her students for her dedication to teaching and her students, her high expectations of student work, her availability to always help students with coursework, and her excellence as an advisor of the ACS Club.  Kudos to Mrs. Payne on this well-deserved honor!

Faculty and administrators in the School of the Sciences attended the 2016 Capital PKAL Regional Network Conference on Creating Learning Environments:  Valuing Diversity, Improving Retention and Promoting Persistence for Students in STEM.  Everyone learned new ideas on these topics and brought back great ideas for use at SU.  In addition, the networking opportunities at the conference allowed for collaborations between universities in the Baltimore-Washington area.  From the Chemistry Department, Dr. Dawn Ward (second from left, front), Dr. Michelle Ivey (second from right) and Dr. Ellen Roskes (left) attended the conference.

 

Chemistry faculty member, Dr. George Lauterbach, spent part of his winter break in Mexico.  He was able to find and photograph this beautiful bird, a squirrel cuckcoo.  This large and long-tailed cuckoo grows to 16-20 inches and weighs about 4 oz.  

 

A week before the start of each semester, faculty gather to discuss plans for the new semester.  This January, a new approach to our upper level integrative labs was discussed, upcoming award winners were chosen, and new ways to help freshmen and sophomore students be more successful in their coursework were brainstormed.  Everyone is excited to start the Spring 2016 semester!
