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
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.
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.
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.
