Measuring the collective contributions
of Professors Dan Bean and Doug Green to the careers of
countless biologists would daunt even the most ambitious among
us. Suffice it to say that our two colleagues have earned
the love and respect of their students and peers across the
entire Saint Michael's College Community.
The Green-Bean Fund will be established in
honor of Doug Green and Dan Bean, professors of Biology who
served as longtime faculty members at Saint Michael's College.
They both exhibited the best qualities of a college faculty
member - they were dedicated to their students' learning and
development as scientists. They encouraged student inquiry and
discovery, and constantly challenged their students to take
advantage of every opportunity to explore the wonders of the
natural world. The proceeds from this fund will be used to meet
the needs of students in the Biology Department in ways that
would support the goals and ideals of Professors Green and Bean.
The specific allocations will be determined by the department
chair, in consultation with members of the department, but
generally will support student learning, experience, and
professional development in the biological sciences.
