Collegium’s board has made it a strategic priority to develop useful resources to encourage and support the professional development and vocational discernment of STEM faculty on our campuses, and to ensure that conversations about mission reflect the work and interests of these disciplines. A group of four Collegium alums from several STEM disciplines -- Rob Bellin (Holy Cross), David Crowley (Assumption), Heather Dillon (U of Washington), and Shannon Mayer (U of Portland) -- is leading this work.
