Chair's Message
Spring 2011



Welcome to the Spring 2011 issue of Biology Matters.  It has been a very busy, and at times emotionally challenging, spring semester � as you can read for yourself.  Because our program is growing, there has been, and continues to be, a lot going on.  A group of students and faculty enjoyed a tropical ecology trip to Costa Rica over the holiday break between semesters, interest in the Biology major is growing, student research interest and opportunities are very strong, we�ve had a large number of visits from prospective students and their families, and we continue to hear from alumni. We also suffered a tremendous loss this semester � our dear friend and colleague Doug Green died of cancer over the spring break.  So although the spring brings with it longer, warmer, and brighter days, it will take a bit longer for us to truly get in the spirit. 


Doug Facey
Chair, Department of Biology
