Monday, October 11, 2004


SCSU faculty and staff generated more than $9 million in external grants and contracts during the past year to enhance research, learning, creative activities, and public service on campus and within the broader community.

University colleagues — working with partners from education, government, business/industry, and philanthropy — used those dollars to respond to
real-world issues.

Activities included:

  • Implementing secure information technology to connect rural health care providers
  • Providing specialized driving instruction to peace officers, emergency responders, truck operators, road maintenance workers and others
  • Identifying chemicals harmful to fish and algae for removal by water treatment facilities
  • Enhancing teacher preparation by using a co-teaching approach during student field experiences
  • Monitoring and controlling non–native invasive plant species in natural areas at Camp Ripley
