Kathy Burleson, senior lecturer in biology, presented at the Introductory Biology Project (IBP) Summer Conference: Implementing Vision and Change at the Introductory Biology Level at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington, DC, June 28-July 1, 2012. Burleson presented a poster on her work with Bonnie Ploger (Hamline professor of biology) entitled “Developing departmental diversity initiatives using surveys as a tool to gauge biology classroom climate.”
