APSU expanding reach into underserved communities with new Center for Rural Education

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – In his retirement, Dr. Philander Claxton, the former U.S. Commissioner of Education under Presidents Taft, Wilson and Harding, felt a lingering nostalgia for his time in Clarksville, where he served as the second president of Austin Peay Normal School. He retired from the school in 1946.

“I accepted the presidency of Austin Peay Normal School because it had been founded for the purpose of preparing teachers for the rural schools,” the 90-year-old Claxton wrote in 1953. “As long as I was president, I did all I could to hold it to that purpose, which was and still is the most difficult and important part of an educational system.”

Adventure Science Center to hold Conference for High School Girls on February 17th

 

Adventure Science CenterNashville, TN – As technology continues to progress, the disparity of women in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers grows ever more apparent. According to a recent poll conducted by Pew Research Center, the percentage of female representation in this field has actually decreased – dropping from 32% in 1990 to 25% today. More than ever, young women need encouragement and support to begin their journey into these competitive fields.

That’s where the Tennessee Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Research (T.W.I.S.T.E.R.) Conference comes into play.
