Fulton Schools students put their heads together and earned second place in the 2019 Arizona State University Academic Bowl. The Maroon team students — Kai Yin, a computer science junior; Geoffrey Wong, a computer science senior; Kyle Xue, a double-major biomedical engineering and computer science junior; Jack Fleitman, a computer science senior; Colton Sowers, a computer science senior; and Brian Kozik, a computer science junior and captain of the team — will split $10,000 in scholarship money.

In classic College Bowl style, the ASU Academic Bowl pits teams of four against each other in lightning-fast question and answer rounds for trivia in political science, pop culture and everything in between. Top teams earn scholarship money and bragging rights.

“Moving Forward the Poly Way”

The Polytechnic School (TPS) has a robust set of curricular offerings in a synergistic set of content areas. I will present ideas and my prior work in program growth and broadening student access with respect to under-represented populations. Current TPS measures show there is capacity to increase externally funded research programs. With the interdisciplinary strength of the school, TPS faculty should continue existing opportunities and should identify new opportunities to partner within and outside of ASU. I will present strategies I used to secure federally funded research centers and training grants and discuss how the strategies can help TPS grow. I have served as an administrator in two multi-disciplinary academic units. I will present strategies I have used with respect to strategic planning, faculty and staff recruitment and development and related topics and how these may translate to TPS.
