At the end of July, Dr. Michelle Ivey (in red) attended the PKAL Summer Leadership Institute in Adamstown, MD.  At the Institute, she worked with mentors and other attendees to develop exciting ideas on increasing success and fostering an environment that embraces and encourages diversity.  She plans to start incorporating these ideas at Stevenson this year.

Dr. Tim Dwyer and Dr. Jeremy Burkett took a short break from class preparations to compete in the 2nd Annual Druid Hill "Ace Race" disc golf tournament this past weekend.  The tournament tests a player's accuracy by only allowing everyone to throw a single shot per hole!  Points are earned either by scoring a hole-in-one ("ace") or by hitting different parts of the basket.  Out of a field of 28 players, Dr. Dwyer and Dr. Burkett scored high enough to finish in 14th and 12th place, respectively!

Several of our Chemistry Faculty members participated in the Writing Retreat at the Gramercy Mansion, sponsored by the Office of Sponsored Programs and Research.  This weeklong summer program allows interested faculty members the chance to write for a full week.  Faculty worked on grants and research papers without other usual office distractions.   Pictured above:  Dr. Tracey Mason (top left), Dr. Michelle Ivey (top right), and Dr. Tim Dwyer (bottom).  Not pictured:  Dr. Will Harrell.

As the semester winds down, faculty are preparing to move their labs and offices to our new building at the Owings Mills North campus.  The Center for Environmental Sustainability has organized a book drive to donate unwanted books from faculty offices.  Dr. Tim Dwyer is diving right into the offer to help!

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.
