The Biology Department proudly celebrates the achievements of Professors Sherryl Broverman and Emily Bernhardt. Emily has just been named the Jerry G. and Patricia Hubbard Professor of Biology for her excellence in teaching, including redesigning the core ecology course to feature a "flipped classroom." Sherryl has been given the Dean's Award for Diversity in recognition of her continuing work with WISER, a secondary school for impoverished girls and AIDS orphans in Muhuru Bay, Kenya. As part of this work, Sherryl mentors Duke undergrads as they engage with the difficult social and biological problems faced by young women growing up in rural Kenya.
Felicitations to Sherryl and Emily!
