Assistant Professor of Biology, Dr. Zach Grimes, is part of a multi-institutional grant team that was recently submitted to the National Science Foundation (NSF). Dr. Grimes is an author on two research studies that have been published this year and has also submitted his third to the Journal of Research in Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education for publication titled “Conceptions of Disciplinary Anxiety across Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)” along with co-author Dr. Grant Gardner Ph.D. of Middle Tennessee State University.
We are incredibly blessed to have Dr. Grimes as a part of our growing Division of Arts and Sciences.
“The Division of Arts and Sciences at CRC is poised for some amazing growth in the coming months and years. Not only the new Chemistry building breaking ground this summer, but program partnerships with both Harding and Freed-Hardeman give us a starting point. These 5 programs will require us to design and implement 11 new courses in the sciences and mathematics, 7 of which will include rigorous laboratory components. These new courses will also give us more courses to add to our existing programs in addition to the potential for new concentrations that could use these courses. The new building and expanded infrastructure provided therein will also give us the capability for local community outreach and service.” -Dr. Grimes
