Dr. Michael Kennedy, director of Science in Society and research professor of neurobiology at Northwestern University, was recently appointed to the Teacher Advisory Council of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. The council was established in 2002 to bring the expertise of classroom teachers to the education and outreach work undertaken by the Academies.
Last week, Northwestern’s Science in Society and three other Chicago-area organizations received awards of distinction from honor society Phi Beta Kappa.
Phi Beta Kappa is a premier academic honor society, known for celebrating excellence and advocating for the arts and sciences since its inception in 1776. Each year the society coordinates service projects, college scholarships and service awards in chapters across the country.
