Black history is often celebrated by recognizing trailblazers from Martin Luther King Jr. to Maya Angelou, from Sojourner Truth to Serena Williams. IUP, too, has its pioneers—its earliest Black students. Most became teachers or were trained to be. One was a champion for children’s mental health. Learn more about them.
In the journal Nature, biology professor Shundong Bi and a colleague from the Carnegie Museum of Natural History describe a new specimen that represents an evolutionary stepping-stone between fossils from the Mesozoic Era and living mammals.
Shundong Bi and collaborators have discovered a dinosaur preserved sitting atop a nest of its own eggs that include fossilized babies inside. Their paper about the discovery was published in Science Bulletin.
Christian Vaccaro, Melissa Swauger, and Alex Heckert, along with a Kent State colleague, published “Sociological Conceptualizations of Compassion Fatigue: Expanding Our Understanding” in the journal Sociology Compass.
John Chrispell, Mathematical and Computer Sciences, had an article published in the journal of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics about IUP students’ success in an international mathematical contest in modeling.
