SU Faculty Present at Graduate School Success Symposium

Seven SU faculty recently participated in the “Invest in Your Future” graduate school success symposium hosted by the Edward St. John Teaching and Learning Center in College Park, MD.

During the SU portion of the symposium, representatives discussed the advantages of working at a primarily undergraduate institution (PUI) like Salisbury through panels including “Why and How to Work at a PUI,” “Research and Teaching Balance” and “Mentoring and Resources.”

Panelists included Drs. Deneen Long-White, faculty in the School of Health Sciences Community Program; Jennifer Nyland, director of the Henson Honors in Science and Mathematics program, and faculty in the Biology Department; Yuki Okubo, faculty in the Psychology Department; Dana Price, faculty in the Biology Department and Biology Department graduate program director; and Anthony Rojas, faculty in the Chemistry Department.

Moderators were Drs. Jessica Clark of the Biology Department and Chrys Egan of the Communication Department, co-directors of SU’s Office of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity.
