“The importance of the collaboration between the University and high schools in our local community is essential. This grant, and the Partners program as a whole, equips science teachers with the research experience to implement better practices in their own classrooms,” noted Fr. Gerard Olinger, C.S.C., vice president of university relations. The grant represents the latest in support for the University from the Murdock Charitable Trust that, to date, totals almost $10 million dollars.”
