Science students present findings at The James Bradford Colloquium, Homer A. Anderson lecture features Chaz Miller '07
Science Division students presented their research findings at the
annual James Bradford Colloquium, held at Boyd Science Center. The
colloquium is the culmination of research conducted by seniors from the
division’s biology, chemistry, geology, physics and engineering,
mathematics, computer science and psychology departments, as well as
interdisciplinary programs in molecular biology, environmental science,
neuroscience and conservation science. Their presentations were made to
their student peers and the Science Division faculty. The faculty then
choose the top three presenters. Read the whole story.

The annual Homer A. Anderson Lecture was delivered by alumnus Chaz Miller ’07. Miller’s address, titled Creativity: The Key Ingredient,
chronicled his professional and academic experience since leaving
Muskingum, and the importance of creativity and flexibility when making
the transition from academia to the corporate world
After graduating from Muskingum with a degree in
in physics, Miller earned his master’s degree in materials science and
engineering from the University of Texas at Dallas. Today, he is a
semiconductor fabrication engineer at Texas Instruments.
Following the Anderson Lecture, students from the
Science Division made poster presentations of their research findings.
The Science Division includes the departments of biology, chemistry,
geology, physics and engineering, mathematics, computer science and
psychology as well as interdisciplinary programs in molecular biology,
environmental science, neuroscience and conservation science. Their
work was judged by the division’s faculty and three prize winners and
three honorable mentions were named. Read the whole story.

Nursing program receives accreditation
University announces that its Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
program has received accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate
Nursing Education (CCNE).
"In creating our
nursing program, Muskingum recognized the need ofthe nation and the
southeastern Ohio region for nurses who hold a baccalaureate degree,"
said Dr. Anne C. Steele, Muskingum University president. “This
accreditation affirms the distinction of Muskingum’s nursing program,
as well as the quality that can be found throughout the entire
Muskingum’s BSN program admits
both four-year pre-licensure students and registered nurses who have
either graduated from a hospital diploma nursing program or an
associate degree nursing program. The program provides a strong liberal
arts and science foundation integrated throughout the program to create
the basis for the study and practice of professional nursing.
Successful completion of the program also provides a foundation for
graduate study and continuing professional education.
accreditation status by CCNE is a significant achievement and is
grounded in the Baccalaureate Essentials published by the American
Association of Colleges of Nursing,” said Dr. Elaine Haynes, chair of
the department of nursing and director of nursing programs at
Muskingum. “This means that all graduates of Muskingum with the BSN
are graduates of a nationally accredited program. This is a vital
component for most employers and for entry into graduate nursing
by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency,
CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency located at One Dupont Circle,
NW, Suite 530, Washington, DC 20036, (202) 887-6791. It contributes to
the improvement of the public's health and ensures the quality and
integrity of baccalaureate, graduate and residency programs in nursing.
