Faculty Fellow Joins SALT Center Team
This fall, the SALT Center welcomed Dr. Lisa Elfring, Associate Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, as our new Faculty Fellow. Lisa is eager to engage with students, faculty, and staff from other disciplines to learn more about their experiences and challenges. She also looks forward to expanding her own knowledge and understanding of how students learn.
What is the Faculty Fellow Program, you may ask? It is a group of 45 UA faculty dedicated to promoting student engagement and success by creating a supportive environment on campus. You can learn more at: http://saem-aiss.arizona.edu/sr-vp/faculty-programs/faculty-fellows/
