District representatives from across the Rio Grande Valley (RGV) convened at the Texas Graduate Center (TGC) on November 12th to discuss a new initiative being offered to improve Biology education in the area.
The TGC will now offer RGV Biology teachers the opportunity to earn a Masters in Biology for Teaching through Washington University in St. Louis. District reps, along with South Texas College Biology professor Dr. Odeh, met at the TGC to discuss program details and implementation.
We were joined, via Skype, by Executive Director of the program and Assistant Dean of Arts and Sciences Victoria May and Accounting and Grant Specialist, Margo Hathaway. The two-year program is scheduled to begin in Summer 2016.
The Texas Graduate Center is a component of the Texas Valley Communities Foundation and has been established to support programs in higher education. TGC offers distance learning graduate programs from outstanding universities, such as the Harvard Extension School, in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
