MU Today – Biology & Nutrition

Learn about two of MU's outstanding departments in today's special feature

 

by John Vogt - September 18, 2015

Welcome to this latest edition of MU Today. This monthly broadcast feature is written and produced by Mansfield University for The Home Page Network. On today’s program we learn about to of MU’s outstanding departments.

We begin with a look at the Mansfield University Department of Biology. Dr. Bob Maris who is a Professor and Department Chair starts things off in the Grant Science Center. The Center was named after Herbert Grant in1965. Grant learned the value of hard work at an early age. He was the son of local Scottish and Welsh coal miners, but gave up that work to get an education. He spent the better part of four decades inspiring other young scientists. Grant was born in Arnot in 1883 to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Grant, one of the original pioneer families in Tioga County in the 1850s. His father was of Scottish descent and his mother was a native of Wales. The Arnot of the late 19th century was unlike the sleepy little town of today. In fact, Arnot was the largest town in terms of population in the county at one point, with a population of about 3,500.

The Department of Biology mission statement is to provide high quality undergraduate instruction to both Biology majors and non-majors, to integrate the scientific method and scientific investigation into the Biology curriculum, and to enhance the University, community, and region.

Dr. Maris goes on to detail what the Department of Biology has to offer. And, as the broadcast unfolds Alexis Anderson, who is a Junior in Biology, shares with us why she chose Mansfield University. Alexis did not want to be thrown into a Biology course with 120 students. She likes the smaller class size at Mansfield University where she can get to know her Professors. Andrew Putt, who is also a Junior in Biology and Geography has been inspired to move more in the direction of research after his exposure to the course of study at Mansfield University.

Mansfield University is the only Biology program in Pennsylvania that requires undergraduate independent research.

As the broadcast continues Dr. Kathy Wright, Director of the Nutrition Program at MU goes on to describe the Nutrition Program. The Nutrition program at Mansfield University offers two concentrations, one in dietetics and one in sports nutrition.

Student Avery Yoder, a Junior in the Dietetics and Sports Nutrition department believes that this course of study is one of the strongest programs that Mansfield University has to offer.

Dr. Kathy Wright goes on to describe the strength of the program and the advantages that students have at Mansfield University. Student Nikita Grove, a Senior in the Nutrition and Dietetics curriculum appreciates the one-on-one attention that students receive from the professors. She also is grateful for the close relationships that she has been able to develop with her classmates.

The Nutrition program’s Dietetic concentration is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics.

This is a general overview of today’s broadcast feature. Please take a few moments to watch today’s program to expand your overall understanding of what Mansfield University has to offer in these two outstanding departments.
