Ritchey to Speak at LINC Luncheon
October 19, 2010
Dr. Ann Ritchey, associate professor of mathematics at Mount Union will present “Students Are More Than Just Statistics” on Tuesday, October 26 at the LINC luncheon at Mount Union.
Ritchey has been looking at the Department of Mathematics placement results for the past few years and also the retention rates of Mount Union students. According to Ritchey, there is some correlation between the two. On Tuesday, Ritchey will be discussing her research on this topic, as well as what Mount Union is currently doing to address the needs of all students that take mathematics courses at the University.
A member of the Mount Union faculty since 2000, Ritchey earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mathematics from California State University. She also earned a doctoral degree in mathematics from the University of Oregon.
The community luncheon series known as LINC (lunch, information, networking and conversation) was conceived to take advantage of the local expertise that exists in Alliance, in light of the University’s exceptional academic reputation. This is an opportunity to gain practical knowledge from local experts and a chance to interact with members of the University and greater Alliance community.
The sessions are open to the public and will run from noon until 1 p.m. during the fourth Tuesday of the months of November, January, February and March. The cost of lunch is $10, and will be served in the Hoover-Price Campus Center. Payment will be accepted at the door, but space is limited.
On Tuesday, November 23, Dr. Jon Scott, professor of biology and associate academic dean for special projects will present “What Do We Really Know About Biology?”
