Solving the equation

Though the College of Education is graduating an increasing number of science and math educators, the state – and nation – is still in desperate need of these teachers. To encourage more students to considering teaching science and math, Carolina is offering top students scholarships which are funded by a National Science Foundation grant program.


Health promotion through storytelling

After becoming interested in storytelling as a way to promote health, public health professor Alyssa Robillard began documenting the experiences of HIV-positive African-American women. Now, she and junior Chelsea Perry are producing an audiobook that will educate at risk groups about staying safe in their sexual relationships.

Carolina changes the world

The University of South Carolina is expanding its global reach in Southeast Asia. President Harris Pastides recently signed partnerships with three universities in Vietnam, which will allow for collaboration in teaching, research and service. Now, the Office of Study Abroad is sending a delegation of faculty and staff to the country over spring break to explore other opportunities for Carolina students.

Where no one has gone before

Jana Liese had her sights set on an internship at the National Institutes of Health but no students in the Washington Semester Program had ever landed an internship in a research lab. "At first, I was a little dejected," Liese says. "But then I decided I'm going to make this happen."
