CFDE Newsletter, May 2018

CFDE Director Message from the Director

This is my final newsletter message as CFDE director. I have so enjoyed working with the wonderful staff of CFDE and with the many faculty across all the Emory schools, with whom we have had the privilege to work. I look forward to opportunities to collaborate with faculty and CFDE as I move into the role of vice provost for undergraduate education. 

The incoming director of CFDE, Professor Eric Weeks, brings a wealth of expertise to the role including as a leading professor of physics, as founder of the Emory Science Education Research Journal club, and as a great mentor: he has just been awarded Emory's George P. Cuttino Award for Excellence in Mentoring. I look forward to seeing CFDE transform under his leadership in future years. For now, I wish everyone a very good summer.

Best wishes,

New CFDE Director: Eric Weeks
