'Portal to the Public' Develops Faculty Skills,
Shares Research with Community
A national program run locally by Science Central that helps connect public audiences with current science in their own communities has been implemented at IPFW. The Science Central Portal to the Public program helps make the connection through direct interactions with local researchers and experts. Science Central initiated the multi-year program via numerous grants received from the Portal to the Public Network (PoPNet) funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

"Portal to the Public allows us to share with the community who we are as an institution and broaden how the general public conceives of science," said Shannon Bischoff, associate professor of linguistics and director of the Institute for Research, Scholarship, and Creative Endeavors. IPFW participated in the program with an inaugural group of 12 faculty in various areas of expertise. Read the news release
