The story includes comments from seniors Issa Bangura (Accounting) and Megan Donovan (Elementary Education) as well as accounting professor Vicki Doby and School of Education Dean Deborah Kraft.
  • Nursing Chair Ellen Clayton was interviewed for “Preparing Future Nurses,” which discusses how area nursing programs are adapting to an ever-changing healthcare environment. The portion of the article on Stevenson emphasizes the University’s newly formed School of Health Professions as well as the addition of essential classroom and lab space in the New Academic Center at Owings Mills North.
