The chapter will be going on a private tour at the Sagamore Spirit Distillery

on May 23rd at 7pm. We have very limited space for this event so please only register

if you're committed to going. Normally they charge $15 per person for the tour,

but they are waving the fee for us! It's a beautiful facility and their product is

very popular, so come join us for a behind-the-scenes look at their operation.

  • New research shows promise for success of underrepresented scholars in STEM
    With the goal of preparing scholars from underrepresented groups to succeed in graduate and professional programs, Penn State, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC) and the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) partnered to develop undergraduate programs aimed at increasing retention and academic performance of historically racially underrepresented undergraduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. In a new study published in the journal Science, the authors describe promising early results in expanding diversity and inclusion in STEM by leveraging lessons learned from successful programs with immersive interinstitutional partnering. This approach could serve as a model for other universities with different populations of students, sizes and cultures.
