Mutual Mentoring for Teaching

Thanks to the leading efforts of Professor Jennifer Ross, the Physics Department was awarded a Mellon Mutual Mentoring Grant to enhance physics teaching excellence at UMass. The Physics Department educates over 4,000 students per year from general education to advanced graduate courses. With a challenging and diverse subject matter, each physics course presents individual challenges for our instructors to help the different student populations master and succeed with physics. The Mellon Mutual Mentoring Grant will enable physics instructors to work on solutions to these challenges and improve teaching at all levels.
