T.W. Bennett Symposium: STEM Education for the Future
Join us for an interdisciplinary and interactive day of learning and discussion about STEM education research with over 20 speakers. Dr. Julie Cwikla, Distinguished Bennett Professor, invites USM faculty, students and staff to participate, celebrate and honor the legacy of T. W. BENNETT and his parents who started something special at Southern Miss.
The symposium is made possible thanks to the T.W. Bennett Endowment, established at USM by Mr. and Mrs. T.W. Bennett, Sr. in honor of their son, Thomas Waring Bennett Jr. and his love for the sciences. He was declared missing in action on December 22, 1972, while serving in the United States Air Force.
The Endowment established the Bennett Distinguished Professorship, which is awarded every two years to an exceptional professor in the sciences. Earnings from the endowment are used to support research activities of the Bennett Professor and to sponsor the biennial T.W. Bennett Symposium.
