Kathy Lawton Visits Tompkins-Cortland as External Reviewer

Associate Professor of Biology Kathy Lawton recently participated in a team site visit of the Biotechnology Program at Tompkins-Cortland Community College (TC3).  Hosted by the program chair, Dr. James Jacob, Kathy toured the TC3 campus, had lunch with students, and reviewed TC3’s biotech program curriculum.  Other members of the external review committee included faculty members Susan Graham (Upstate Medical University), Alicia Orta-Ramirez (Cornell University), and Linda Rehfuss (Montgomery County Community College, PA). 

Dr. Lawton also recently completed a program evaluation of MCC’s own Biotechnology program, and served on the Faculty Senate’s Ad Hoc Committee on Assessment during the past academic year.  Our thanks to Kathy for extending her work in assessment beyond the College as a way of building connections with similar efforts at other institutions.
