In the fall of 2010, the College of William & Mary was awarded $1.2 million from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute for the advancement of undergraduate science education and outreach in the biological sciences and other scientific disciplines. As the fourth consecutive grant, this funding has expanded undergraduate research opportunities, led to new and enhanced interdisciplinary course offerings, offered faculty development initiatives, and provided resources for teachers and pre-college students. All four grants, but particularly the 2010 grant, stress the importance of interdisciplinary and integrative approaches to education and research - and to increasing diversity in the sciences.
This website describes the goals, initiatives, and some of the accomplishments of William and Mary's HHMI program. It also provides students, faculty, and educators with an overview of available opportunities and resources supported by the HHMI Undergraduate Science Education Program grant to the College of William and Mary. We welcome broad participation in the various initiatives!
