New Science Advisory Board

Mar 15, 2021

As Flagler College continues to expand its science programs, a new Science Advisory Board has been launched that brings together representatives from Northrop Grumman, NASA, the North Florida Land Trust, the St. Johns River Water Management District, as well as a host of other tech companies, environmental consultants and others in the industry.

The mission of the board is to serve as the principal connection between the science community and the Department of Natural Sciences at Flagler College. The members will also assist the college in fundraising efforts directly related to improving the science-based programming, and guiding and mentoring students interested in science-related fields in the trends and competitive job skills for their future career paths.

“We could not be more thrilled to work with our new science advisory board members,” said Melissa Southwell, associate professor of Natural Sciences and dean of the School of Humanities and Sciences. “They possess a wide variety of scientific expertise, and they bring a wealth of real-world knowledge and experience that will help prepare our students for twenty-first century careers in science. It’s an exciting moment in the development of our program.”

To further advance the sciences, a Biology major has been approved at the college and will be added to the curriculum.
