J. Mark Erickson
Chapin Professor of Geology J. Mark Erickson and Sarah McElfresh '98 recently gave a presentation for a webinar sponsored by the American Geological Institute (AGI) on "Engaging Geoscience Alumni as Career Resources."
In addition to Erickson and McElfresh, a retired faculty member and an alumna of Georgia Southern University gave presentations.
A description of the webinar, which was available free on the AGI site, states "Join us to listen to faculty and alumni from the geoscience departments at St. Lawrence University and Georgia Southern University discuss strategies for reaching out and engaging geoscience department alumni as career resources. This webinar will focus on the steps these departments have taken to stay in touch with alumni and get them involved in providing career information for their students (e.g. providing talks in geoscience courses, participating in a Geoscience Career Day or Fair, interacting with students at a department open house day, actively mentoring students, etc.)."
The presentation by Erickson and McElfresh was titled "Engaging Alumni In Undergraduate Geoscience Education: What we do and how we do it, a case study from St. Lawrence University."
