Longtime LVC supporters Dr. E.H. Arnold H’87 and Dr. Jeanne Donlevy Arnold H’08 established The Edward H. Arnold and Jeanne Donlevy Arnold Program for Experiential Education earlier this year to support student-faculty research, independent student summer research, and independent student internships. In the program’s inaugural year, the Arnolds awarded nearly $50,000 to more than 80 deserving student and faculty recipients.
Funds were awarded through a systematic process overseen by Dr. Michael Green, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty, and the newly created Arnold Grant Selection Committee which includes faculty representatives from the three major academic divisions. Dr. Owen Moe, chair and Vernon and Doris Bishop Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, represents the science division; Dr. Renee Norris, associate professor of music, represents the humanities division; and Dr. David Setley, assistant professor of business administration, represents the social science division. Sharon Givler, director of career services, evaluated the internship applications.
“We want to provide high impact experiences for the students,” Green said. “Student-faculty research across the curriculum is a hallmark signature of the College. We are thrilled to have so much interest in a program that places academics front and center.”
