Friday, September 23

On Friday, September 23, an Alumni/ae Association breakfast and business meeting was held for all Joint Program Alumni/ae.  Outgoing association president Jamie Austin was thanked for his years of leadership, and new president Paul Snelgrove was welcomed.  A Symposium on Oceans and Education followed the association meeting. 

The symposium began with a brief history of WHOI academic programs (Postdoctoral, Joint Program, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Summer Student Fellow, Minority Fellow, Guest Student and K-12).  A series of short presentations were given by MIT/WHOI Joint Program alumni/ae engaged in various aspects of education from formal to informal, grades K through undergraduate.  The presentations were followed by a discussion of past, present, and future challenges for education activities at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

A barbecue to celebrate John Farrington's 15 years as Vice President for Academic Programs and Dean followed the symposium.
