@Jean Maines - I've moved your query to a discussion on this page, where threaded responses are easier to follow, OK?

Greetings fellow pulses. Quick question--do you know the approximate % of students who pass (a-c) freshman biology for science majors at your institution? Anyone know where to find this data nationally?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi Brian and David; great to hear from you, and to have your support!

Is there anything that you could suggest as a way to pull in more of the PULSE community in the Southwest? Would a reminder of the resources available (Ambassador Visits, On-lineWorkshops and the ToolKit) be useful? We are planning a SW PULSE Workshop for next Spring, but that is a long way away (and we will have to get funding).

Any ideas are welcome!

I will be glad to help in any way and promote our activities through the Society for College Science Teachers and the National Association of Biology Teachers.

Hi everyone! I am very excited that the Southwest group is now a reality. After a brief 2 days to catch up on sleep I am now re-energized, and ready to think about all that we can do in our region.
