CENTER FOR ENERGY AND THE FUTURE

A task force led by Professor Jonathan Williamson of the department of

political science has completed its report that includes recommendations

for establishing a Center for Energy and the Future. The process of

implementation, which will take several years, will begin during the 2015-16

academic year.

ARCHAEOLOGY

The College continues to expand the scope of our nationally recognized

program in archaeology with the hiring of Dr. Jessica Munson. Dr. Munson,

a two-year visiting assistant professor, will build a Latin American track to

complement the current Near East focus of the department. In collaboration

with the state government in Puebla, Mexico, the College has submitted

a proposal to Mexico’s national archaeological authority to allow our

students and faculty access to one of that region’s active and important

archaeological digs. Dr. Munson is in the early stages of developing her own

site in Guatemala, to which our students will have access.

OUTDOOR EDUCATION

Funds from gifts by Lycoming trustees Mel Campbell ’70 and Dale Krapf ’67

are being used to explore and develop an outdoor education program.

Mr. Justin A. Ellison was hired as director of the program in September.

CAREER CLUSTERS

The Career Clusters model continues to expand. By placing career advisors

in the academic departments, the program will better prepare students

and recent graduates as they compete for post-graduate opportunities.
