The primary goal of the Targeted Infusion project is to expand the course offerings in the biology degree curriculum to include courses in plant biology and environmental science. The overall outcome of this project is to increase the number of students who obtain baccalaureate degrees in a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) discipline that pursue graduate degrees in biology, specifically in the areas of plant biotechnology and environmental science. Melton and Cunningham’s goal is to increase the number of students who graduate with degrees each year from a current average of four to five percent to seven to eight percent by 2016.
“The School of Sciences, Mathematics & Engineering is excited to be awarded this grant to enhance the biology program,” stated Dr. Mark Melton of the Biology department. “This grant will provide funds needed to assist in the development and implementation of these courses. Now the work begins.” This award is effective Sept.15, 2012 and expires Aug. 31, 2015.
