UW-River Falls biology professor selected as a Vision and Change Leadership Fellow
October 11, 2012
Karen Klyczek, professor of biology, has been selected to serve as a Vision and Change Leadership Fellow with the Partnership for Undergraduate Life Sciences Education (PULSE) program.
The PULSE program is a joint initiative of the National Science Foundation (NSF), Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The effort is supporting a yearlong program in which Vision and Change Leadership Fellows consider and then recommend models for improving undergraduate life sciences education.
“The Fellows represent a diverse group of extremely capable faculty,” said Judith Verbeke of the NSF. “They bring a variety of experiences that will inform the development of an implementation framework that will transform undergraduate education in the life sciences.”
