November Associates to highlight College’s STEM initiative

11/07/2018
MONMOUTH, Ill. – Monmouth College has launched a major academic initiative to further position its students to be competitive in careers related to science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

At the next Monmouth Associates program on Nov. 15, three Monmouth faculty members will speak about the STEM programs in data science, engineering and neuroscience that the College will be adding next fall. Chris Fasano, Logan Mayfield and Laura Moore will speak at noon in the Whiteman-McMillan Highlander Room of Stockdale Center.

The engineering program is based on three cores: science, engineering and renaissance thinking. Data science will equip students with a background in statistics, machine learning, programming, algorithms, data analysis and data visualization. Neuroscience encompasses disciplines ranging from physics to philosophy. The program’s courses will appeal to students interested in exploring health, societal and legal influences of neuroscientific research.

Monmouth’s three new academic programs will be housed in the College’s Center for Science and Business. The building’s exceptional laboratory and research spaces make it an ideal location.

The cost for a buffet lunch is $10 ($9 for Monmouth faculty and staff). Reservations can be made by calling 309-457-2231 by Nov. 13 or by email at alumni@monmouthcollege.edu.

A free shuttle van transports passengers from two locations to every Associates luncheon. The van stops at the northeast quadrant of the Public Square at 11:45 a.m. and at the Faith United Presbyterian Church parking lot at around 11:50 a.m. It returns to both locations immediately following the program.

Shuttle reservations can be made also by calling 309-457-2231.

Parking is available along North Ninth Street and in the parking lot near the Stockdale Center.
