The success of any university requires the leadership and time of devoted faculty. Here are a few of the service projects of which I devote my time that have a large impact on our students and university.
Select Service Projects
Advancement of Undergraduate Research in the Sciences
The Advancement of Undergraduate Research in the Sciences (AURS) fund
was established to support undergraduate research in the College of Natural
Sciences and Mathematics at the University of Central Arkansas. We believe
that engaging undergraduates in fundamental research prepares them for
graduate or professional school as well as enhancing their undergraduate
education. Not only do our undergraduates perform original research with a
faculty mentor they also present that research at local, regional and
national professional meetings and are coauthors on publications about
their research. Our undergraduates have gone on to be successful in their
careers upon graduation due in part to these experiences with our faculty.
STEM Posters at the Arkansas State Capitol
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Undergraduates from
colleges and universities from across the state of
Arkansas talk about their scientific work in layman's terms to elected
state officials, the media, the general public, as well as other
undergraduates and faculty.
