Have a question for YSU’s top cop? Ask it at the next Coffee Hour with the Police Chief 11 a.m. to noon Thursday, March 26, in the Jones Room, Kilcawley Center. Ask questions, voice concerns and grab a cup of joe.

The STEM College has been designated a 2015 STEM Jobs Approved College. The list measures how effectively schools align programs to high demand STEM jobs, and how well they assist students in achieving career aspirations in STEM fields. The list is in the Winter 2015 issue of STEM Jobs magazine.

Biochemistry OK
The Board of Trustees has given the thumbs up to a new bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry. The degree still needs the nod of the Ohio Board of Regents. The degree in the Chemistry department will utilize existing resources and require no extra costs. The Chemistry department projects that the degree will eventually graduate 10 to 15 students a year.
