Michael Linderman receives NIH grant for genomic literacy assessment tool

Michael Linderman (Computer Science) has received funding from the National Institutes of Health for a research project entitled Developing a Genomics Literacy Measure. This NIH Small Grant, awarded to Michael earlier this year while he was at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, has been transferred to Middlebury. The grant will fund the development and validation of a new measure to assess genomic literacy that is reliable across diverse groups of examinees. This tool will enable the rigorous measurement of genomic literacy in the general population and the evaluation of educational programs designed to improve genomic literacy.

Join the Friends of International Students Host Program!

Dear Faculty and Staff-

Our Friends of International Students (FIS) host program recruiting and matching process for the recently admitted Class of 2020 has begun! The Class of 2020 will include more than 70 international students, including some U.S. students who have lived abroad and international exchange students. Please contact us if you’re interested in hosting in the fall and spread the word in our community.

International Student & Scholar Services will hold a series of information meetings about the program  on the second floor of the Service Building. We ask that new hosts attend a meeting so that we can meet them and share more information about the program. If you are an experienced host, we welcome you to join us as your stories and insights are vital to friends who are new to FIS and trying to decide if they would be a good fit for the program.

Here are the dates of our upcoming meetings:

  • Wednesday, July 13 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.
  • Thursday, August 4 from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m.
  • Monday, August 15 from 12:30-1:30 p.m.

To register for a meeting, please email ISSS at isss@middlebury.edu (subject line: FIS Host Program) or call us at 802.443.5858. Feel free to bring your lunch to our afternoon meetings.

You can learn more about the FIS Host Program on our website at: http://www.middlebury.edu/international/isss/fis .

Please share this information with friends and family who do not work at the College.

We invite all who are interested to become a part of this wonderful program!

We look forward to hearing from you!
