Looking for a Cure

Avery Liotta Henderson is passionate about the world of drug discovery. At Saint Joseph's College of Maine, he is gaining experience with hands-on skills in learning how to synthesize, isolate, and purify compounds. He routinely sets up reactions, including those that are sensitive to moisture and air, so by gaining experience with these sensitive techniques, he will be well prepared for graduate school. This type of research opportunity is an extremely valuable experience for our science students, and particularly important to those students who want to pursue scientific research in the future.

Public Invited to Sebago Lake Symposium on February 2, 2019

Hosted by the Portland Water District and the Center for Sustainable Communities at Saint Joseph's College, the Sebago Lake Symposium on February 2, 2019 offers an opportunity for Sebago Lake community members and scientists to interactively and collaboratively share and grow their understanding of Sebago Lake, a freshwater lake that provides water for 15% of Maine's population. Topics covered by speakers and sessions include: health of Sebago Lake fisheries, Sebago Lake water quality, climate change impacts, the Sebago Lake monitoring buoy, algae and invasive plants, citizen science opportunities, beach closures, and policies for lake protection. Free, but registration required.

The Power of Cohort

Supportive environments create lifelong connection bonded by common experiences. Through creating these cohorts we are empowering students by challenging them and supporting them, giving them a place to “start from” as they graduate and become members of the larger human community.
