UAPB Professor invited to speak at Clemson

CLEMSON, SC. – Dr. Sederick C. Rice, assistant professor of biology at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (UAPB) was invited to be a guest speaker at the 1st CRA-W/CDC Broadening Participation in Visualization Workshop to be held at Clemson University, February 10-11, 2014. The purpose of the workshop is to broaden participation of women and underrepresented groups in visualization and allow participants the opportunity to explore and present four visualization perspectives: Scientific Visualization, Information Visualization, Geo-Visualization and Bio-Visualization. Dr. Rice’s current research focuses on utilizing low-cost visualization systems in K-14 science and math learning environments and understanding the spatial visualization abilities of educators and students, which impacts the teaching, learning, and retention of Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) content.

A 1994 graduate of UAPB, Dr. Rice has worked extensively with the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) and the Biomedical Sciences Careers Programs (BSCP), associated with the Harvard University Medical School, to promote opportunities for students interested in biomedical science fields and careers. Dr. Rice’s keys to success are a strong relationship with God, good mentor-relationships, and family support.

  1. Congratulations on the Clemson gig. Could you please get my UAPB online directory fixed? They have me listed as last name Bauer Duke. My last name is duke and my first name is Bauer. Delete the Charles that is in the first name slot. Thanks, Bauer
