Congratulations to David Susko (associate professor of biology),and the EIC! Through the work of David, the University of Michigan-Dearborn has met the standards for certification as an affiliate of Bee Campus USA, and we are the 84th campus in the nation to be certified.

A brief description of the certification follows: In June 2018, Bee City USA and Bee Campus USA became initiatives of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. With your help, we are making the world safer for pollinators, one campus at a time. If we take care of the pollinators, they will continue to make the planet bloom and fruit. Indeed, nearly 90% of the world's flowering plant species rely on pollinators (native bees, honey bees, butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, bats, beetles, flies...) to reproduce.

 

Yunus Zeytuncu (associate professor of mathematics) was recently awarded $53,648 from Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan that will contribute funding for his ongoing Maize and Blue Math Circle Program.
