IGERT faculty develop new "Discovery Seminar"

IGERT faculty worked together to develop a Discovery Seminar as part of a new University at Buffalo program that provides a small class experience for freshman and sophomore students, focusing on selected topics of emerging national interest. The new 1-credit class was team-taught by 10 ERIE faculty participants, who provided weekly seminars on science, engineering, and policy topics related to the Ecological Restoration of the Lower Great Lakes. Student reception was enthusiastic during both semesters, and the 1-credit course will be offered again next year.
