Biotechnology Faculty Host External Reviewers

The Biotechnology Program, led by Kathy Lawton, program coordinator, and James Murphy, Biology Department Chair, hosted a three-member external review committee on Monday, March 29th at MCC.  Dr. Thomas Frederick of RIT’s Biology Department, James Hewitt of FLCC’s Science and Technology Department, and local business leader Carol Tometsko, President and CEO of Litron Laboratories, had the chance to tour MCC’s facilities, view a class, talk with students, and discuss the Biotech program’s curriculum and design with members of the teaching faculty.

External review is an important component of program review.  The committee’s visit was organized by Kathy Lawton, who is currently serving as the program evaluation leader for this year’s assessment of MCC’s Biotechnology program.
