Naz Onel, assistant professor of Business Studies, published ”Tell me your story and I will tell you who you are: Persona perspective in sustainable consumption” in Psychology & Marketing. Onel also recently published a book chapter titled “Green Business: Not Just the Color of Money” in Translating National Policy to Improve Environmental Conditions Impacting Public Health through Community Planning.
Ai Zhang, associate professor of Communications, was featured in Forbes for her work both inside and outside of her classroom walls-bringing purpose and meaning from the world for her growth, to her audience, and back to her students.
“My growth within the last year has surpassed all that I had accomplished through several decades of formal education. And the best part is, I fell in love with the person that I have become-and I feel alive again,” said Zhang. “This change is how I envision the future of education and the role of educators. We all have expertise that can change, transform, and save lives. The possibilities of building classrooms outside of our formal learning environment motivate me every day."
Yeyraliz Ortiz (right), a rising senior at Mainland Regional High School, never thought she was good at science. That belief changed when she met Steven Kalman (left), assistant professor of Chemistry, as the first chemistry apprentice through the Army Research and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) at Stockton University.
Since June, Ortiz has been working with Kalman in his laboratory, gaining hands-on experience in inorganic chemistry projects that have applications in the pharmaceutical industry and specialty applications in flavor and fragrance science.
Plenty of metal catalysts exist for chemists to perform organic reactions, but they’re expensive. Kalman and Ortiz have been working to make new nickel compounds as less expensive alternates to the commonly used platinum, rhodium and ruthenium metals.
Kalman applied and secured funding from the Army Educational Outreach Program to host the REAP program at Stockton providing a unique opportunity to students from underrepresented populations to work as science apprentices.
