A Northwestern State University student is preparing for a prestigious summer internship at the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University in New York. Christina Palomo of Los Angeles will travel from Natchitoches to New York later this month to help Columbia scientists study the environmental consequences of the 2010 BP oil spill. The biology major said she’ll work alongside two geochemists.
The University of New Orleans has named John Williams as the new dean of the College of Business Administration.
Williams has served as the college's interim dean since August of 2010, and was one of three finalists selected from a nationwide search, the university said today in a press release.
“I am confident that Dean Williams will provide the leadership required to enhance the College’s internal operations and continued engagement with the greater New Orleans community,” said UNO Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs James E. Payne.
