A reception will immediately follow in the Welcome Center Lobby. The seminar is free; registration is requested. Abstract: The Michigan Departments of Agriculture and Rural Development, Environmental Quality, and Natural Resources are working together to provide a holistic and coordinated approach to invasive species management in Michigan.  The Michigan Aquatic Invasive Species Management Plan was recently revised and a new Michigan Terrestrial Invasive Species Management Plan is under development.  The recently dedicated five million dollar General Fund investment in the prevention, detection, eradication, and management of invasive species provides for a tremendous opportunity by the State in collaboration with its partners to make serious strides in managing invasive species.  The Michigan Invasive Species Grants Program, the state agency processes, and the framework for this initiative will be discussed. Bio: Dr. Newcomb grew up exploring the woods and waters in Spring Arbor, Michigan.  She has a Master's degree from West Virginia University and a B.S. and Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Fisheries Science.  In her current role, she is the Senior Water Policy Advisor for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources where she serves as the Department lead on Asian carp and as co-chair for the Council of Great Lakes Governor's Aquatic Invasive Species Task Force.  Prior to her 12 years with the State of Michigan, she was an Assistant Professor at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.  Dr. Newcomb and her husband have a 5 year old daughter and live on a hobby farm in Webberville.

College of Engineering Student Design and Innovation Day
May 8 2015 at 1:00 PM
Engineering, College of
On behalf of the Wayne State University College of Engineering, you are invited to attend the inaugural Student Design and Innovation Day on Friday, May 8, from 1 to 5 p.m.  This event will showcase the work of talented students, from senior capstone projects to research team endeavors with industry and community relevance. These projects combine technical engineering excellence and creative design, often with an interdisciplinary approach.  The College of Engineering ranks in the top 30 percent of all engineering programs in the nation in research expenditures, according to the National Science Foundation. We place a strong emphasis on student — particularly undergraduate — research. Supervised by top-tier faculty members, our student capstone and research teams produce high-quality outcomes. Some of these projects were directed and sponsored by partner companies, resulting in advancements to technologies, processes and methods.  For the first time in the college’s history, we want to open our doors to give industry and the community an opportunity to view the diverse range and capabilities of our student research teams. Many projects from each of our eight departments will be on display here at our college in Midtown Detroit. More details and project titles will soon be available on our Student Design and Innovation Day website.
