Nicole Theodosiou, associate professor of biology and co-director of biochemistry, has been awarded the sixth Byron A. Nichols Endowed Fellowship for Faculty Development.
Her three-year project, “Electric City Cottage: A Mobile Cross-Disciplinary Platform for Science Communication,” brings together science, engineering, theater, dance and technical design. It will team students, faculty and community youth to create a mobile learning center, a course on science communication and learning modules for areas in need.
Erika Nelson-Mukherjee, associate professor of German, is the current Nichols Fellow.
The fellowship was created by Susan Mullaney Maycock ’72 and former Union faculty member Alan Maycock in honor of Byron Nichols, professor of political science emeritus who taught from 1968 to 2008.
