CUNY Research Foundation Lauds Dean

Dean Panayiotis Meleties of the School of Arts & Sciences is included among distinguished faculty, administrators honored in the Research Foundation of The City University of New York's annual report. Here's what they had to say:

"Professor Meleties has been instrumental in bringing state-of-the-art tools

to the college community through his two-year, $1.2-million Department of Education award, Fostering African American Students' Talent.' The program's approach is comprehensive as it focuses on supporting science and mathematics and providing instructional and research support to primarily African American students.

"One special aspect of the program is the integration of instructional technology (smart classrooms) into science and mathematics courses. Faculty also benefit by receiving training and utilizing this technology during lessons. Research facilities at the college have significantly improved through the program, resulting in the creation of a mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics learning center and even growth chambers in the biology department. Tutors also work closely with the science and mathematics students.

"'There is constant activity in the math department with tutors and students helping each other and faculty members engaged in supporting and mentoring their students, [Meleties said.]'"
