Here at Emory, we are already working on it. This Fall, the very new PreHealth Mentoring Office will open its doors for business. Note the word Mentoring. It will be about mentoring: long term, relationship building, opening doors, holistic, promoting excellence and success and everything else that comes to mind when you say, Mentor.

Hello world!

Who am I? I am a dean of science for the undergraduates at Emory University, in Emory College.  I am a chemist by training.  I am passionate about science education in general.  At this time, I am thinking a lot about internationalizing science education, bringing interdisciplinarity into undergraduate science education and innovative ways to use today’s technology with our students.  I will blog about Science and Religion, or teaching Tibetan monks science and learning from them, about  liberal arts education for pre meds and prehealth and about using today’ technologies to enhance learning.
