2016 EQUIP summer program
In 2016, I along with Larkin Tom, Dr. Alison Marr and Dr. Emily Niemeyer developed a brand new summer program for incoming freshmen who expressed interest in STEM. The program called EQUIP (Embracing Quantitative Understanding and the Inquiry Process) was designed to introduce students to Southwestern and college life, familiarize students with the rigorous, inquiry-based learning methods taught in most SU science and math classes and create a supportive community among incoming science/math students. Dr. Marr and I taught the program, which consisted of a one week summer on-campus portion and a four week summer online portion. We also co-taught a one credit seminar for EQUIP students during Fall 2016. It was beyond successful in its first run and I am thrilled to have had the chance to get to know and support these amazing students. I'm so excited to watch these students progress through their college career!
