Dr. Pruett has been conducting her 2019-2020 Presidential Fellowship in the Interdisciplinary Institute as a collaboration with Associate Professor of Mathematics, Dr. Brandy Benedict. The two have been researching, developing, and will ultimately co-teach a course in Music and STEM (Science, Technology, Math, and Engineering) for Merrimack. The course aims to serve students from the School of Science and Engineering who are relatively unfamiliar with the ways in which their chosen disciplines intersect arts as well as Liberal Arts students, who often express discomfort with the sciences. Drs. Pruett and Benedict are excited to foster the interdisciplinary connections between the two schools and further the goals of the Interdisciplinary Institute at Merrimack College.
