Review of Books (January 11)
"None of this is to say that evolutionary biology cannot inform
our view of religion. It can and does. At the very least it insists
that the Lord works in mysterious ways," writes H. Allen Orr, professor
of biology, in a review of three books that examine science and religion,
including Evolution and Christian Faith by alumna Joan Roughgarden

Loss of Doctors at 8 Percent
Raymond Mayewski, Dean's Professor of Medicine and chief medical officer
for Strong Memorial Hospital/Highland Hospital, who also heads Strong

Are a Win for Institutions

debut, a phenomenon began to blossom on college campuses nationwide—academic
programs based on the series everyone was talking about. The programs
are helping students land jobs after graduation—both directly
and indirectly through networking opportunities."
