Several Chemistry faculty members participated in the week-long writing institute hosted by the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs (OSPR) at the Gramercy Carriage house near the Greenspring Campus. Much progress was made on the preparation of a paper for submission to Journal of Chemical Education and much needed revision of organic laboratory course material. The institute is in its 9th year and was facilitated by Dr. Jenny Shanahan and Dr. Herb Childress. They provide guidance, advice and a critical eye during the writing process for all participants.
