CONCORD UNIVERSITY GEOLOGY PROFESSOR DR. JOE ALLEN
FEATURED ON COVER OF SCIENCE AND RESEARCH JOURNAL


ATHENS, W.Va. - Concord University Professor of Geology Dr. Joe Allen is the cover feature for the Summer 2012 issue of the Neuron. The journal is a quarterly publication of the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission’s Division of Science and Research.

In “Leading Undergraduates to the Edge of Science” Dr. Allen explains that he wants his students to be aware that today’s science doesn’t have all the answers and much remains unknown.

Dr. Allen is chair of Concord’s Division of Natural Sciences. He helped develop the University’s undergraduate Environmental Geosciences degree program and leads trips to Colorado where students study ancient earthquake activity.
