dc.description.abstractTWU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry has twice received national recognition in 2018 for innovative and engaging teaching. The Association of American Colleges & Universities (AACU) recognized TWU as being a model for how to make civic learning and democratic engagement an expectation for all students who major in chemistry or biochemistry. The National Center for Science and Civic Engagement (NCSCE) also recognized TWU for making extraordinary contributions to citizen science education after more than a decade of using civic engagement to successfully draw students’ interest in courses for non-science majors. The department hosts the SENCER Center for Innovation‒Southwest (SCI-SW), part of a national program founded by NCSCE. SCI-SW focuses on three areas of expertise: Environmental Sustainability, Science Teacher Preparation, and Undergraduate Research.en_US
