Did y’all hear about SMU physics professor Jeff Chalk?

Dallas Morning News Originally Posted: September 22, 2017 If everybody had a physics teacher like Jeff Chalk, we might already have flying cars and moon colonies. The SMU professor who died earlier this month at age 87 was famous for zany demonstrations in class designed to get non-majors jazzed about science. Lying on a bed of nails while another prof took a sledge hammer to a concrete block on his chest, drinking liquid nitrogen, his students surely remember the physics principles he set out to teach. But he wasn't just a showman. Chalk endeavored to learn the names of all his students, even those in his online classes, and worked hard to help undergrad scientists get into grad school. Cheers to a life well-lived. READ MORE

Pia Orrenius, Tower Center, Effects of E-Verify on Unauthorized Immigrant Employment and Population

Tower Center Blog Originally Posted: September 11, 2017 Tower Center Senior Fellow Pia Orrenius published a new study with the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Digital Enforcement, on the effects of the E-Verify system on the employment of immigrants. The E-Verify system requires employers in some states to electronically verify the immigration status of workers before they can be hired. “E-Verify, when it’s mandatory and all employers have to use it, can have very large deterrent effects on the employment of undocumented immigrants and possibly also on the immigration of undocumented immigrants or illegal immigration,” Orrenius said.

Life As One Of SMU’s Faculty In Residence Is Never Dull

SMU Magazine Originally Posted: August 2017 Just ask David Son, professor of chemistry in Dedman College, and wife Heidi – or take a look at photos and memories from a year at Boaz Commons.

The Sons believe so strongly in the Residential Commons model for living and learning at SMU that they sold their home in Plano to move to campus. And they say they’ve never looked back. Besides serving as guides to University life, the Sons have been called upon to: pull a splinter from a toe; help light the charcoal in a grill [...]

It’s about more than Standing Rock

Daily Campus Originally Posted: September 18, 2017 “Can everyone hear me? I have a cold and I sound a bit like Kathleen Turner today,” SMU professor Kacy Hollenback joked to a tightly packed room in Heroy Hall. Around 40 students and faculty members gathered on Wednesday, Sept. 13 to hear the anthropology professor’s lecture, Its About More Than Standing Rock, a presentation on energy development on the North American Great Plains. Audience members chatted amongst themselves, eager to hear her speak, specifically about the Dakota Access Pipeline and its effect on Indian tribes. “I’ve seen it unfold on the news but I wanted to find out more,” audience member and fellow anthropology professor Sara Mosher said. A student in Hollenback’s Archaeology class Anna Braman also wanted to attend [...]
