Why 4 Students, Graduates Chose Their Colleges

US News and World Report Originally Posted: September 24, 2018 Why I picked Southern Methodist University (Dallas) Greg Guggenmos, ’18 Southern Methodist University provides students incredible opportunities to apply what they’re learning. I was accepted to the Dedman College Scholars honors program, and I’ve gotten great mentoring and support. After I became interested in the criminal justice system from a history class, my honors mentor helped me secure a two-week, all-expenses-paid fellowship to New York to research how accused nonviolent offenders become stuck in pretrial detention when they can’t make bail. That experience led me to start a community bail fund in Dallas providing small grants to low-level defendants. SMU also encourages students to see the world with wonderful travel courses. I did archival research [...]

A new survey reveals that not only do business executives value college, they want students with skills associated with the liberal arts.

Inside Higher Ed Originally Posted: August 28, 2018 Public May Not Trust Higher Ed, but Employers Do  A new survey reveals that not only do business executives value college, they want students with skills associated with the liberal arts. Though public support for higher education seems to be waning, this skepticism doesn’t appear to extend to potential employers, who say they still have faith in colleges and universities, according to a new survey conducted on behalf of the Association of American Colleges & Universities. But while executives and hiring managers believe that institutions are teaching graduates the skills needed for entry-level jobs, they reported that students usually aren’t ready to be promoted. AAC&U commissioned the Washington, D.C.-based Hart Research Associates to survey two groups: 500 or so business [...]

What is the problem with Red Snapper in the Gulf of Mexico?

Dedman College News Originally Posted: August 21, 2018 Dr. Lynne Stokes, a professor in the department of statistical science, and a team of Ph.D. students are currently working on a marine science project called, The Great Red Snapper Count. The two-year project is a $10 million effort by a multi-disciplinary team of 21 researchers that will provide a fisheries independent estimate of the abundance of red snapper in the Gulf of Mexico. The SMU team provides statistical support for the project, which will require integrating a variety of data collection and estimation strategies across the Gulf.
