ABOUT CELEBRATION OF SCIENCE AND MATHEMATICS WEEK
The College held its first Celebration of Science and Mathematics Week in September 2017. The event was initiated as a means of highlighting science and mathematics programs at EKU following a structural reorganization that resulted in the establishment of the college on July 1, 2016. It is an opportunity for the college to increase its visibility to both internal and external constituencies.
The 2017 event enabled us to showcase our state-of-the-art building and facilities therein, the dedication and excellence of our faculty, students, and staff, and ongoing engagement with alumni, donors, retired science and mathematics faculty, local high schools, and the community at large, and our commitment to diversity.
Our second annual celebration of science and mathematics week will be held September 10 to 15 and the program is available https://scienceweek.eku.edu/Events. The highlight of the event will be a ceremony to celebrate the granting of LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold status to Phase 2 of the Science Building by the U.S. Green Building Council. The ceremony will be at 2 pm on Monday, September the 10. To earn LEED Gold distinction, facilities must meet stringent standards related to sustainability, energy and water efficiency, indoor environmental quality, materials and resources used in construction, and design innovations.
