[47.10] How Shapley Lectures have Enriched a Small University in the Heart of Michigan

L. Reed (Saginaw Valley State University)

Saginaw Valley State University SVSU, is tucked in the industrial heartland of central Michigan. Our students can best be described as non-traditional in the sense that many are employed full - or part-time while working to upgrade or complete a degree. Our Physics Department is a small but active member of the College of Science, Engineering and Technology. Many Shapley lecturers have visited us over the years and each has inspired our students, faculty and community to think about the universe in a new and exciting way. I will share some of the feed back we have received about the program and emphasize its continuing importance to smaller institutions like SVSU
