An Endowed Chair in Biology Teaching and Learning


Read about the Department of Biology Teaching and Learning in the Fall 207 issue of BIO.

Building on a reputation for biology education innovation

Innovation happens when you have a critical mass of faculty with a shared vision and a strong desire to collaborate. Nowhere is this truer than in the Department of Biology Teaching and Learning, which brings together researchers and educators dedicated to discovering the best ways to teach biology. The department is fundamentally reshaping how students learn biology here and around the world. We will create an endowed chair that will allow the College to attract and retain a top faculty member, strengthening our leadership and cementing our standing in this important area of scholarship and practice.

Your gift in support of continued innovation in biology education will sustain our national leadership in biology education with an endowed chair.

“The Department of Biology Teaching and Learning is like no other place in the nation for scholarship and innovation in teaching STEM. As part of continuing on this trajectory, we need to attract an established faculty member with a national reputation who will make connections across institutions. An endowed chair will help us do that.” 

-Valery Forbes, Dean
