Daniel B. Suter Endowment in Biology

These seminars/presentations are made possible by the sponsorship of the Daniel B. Suter Endowment in biology. The seminar presentations are oriented toward undergraduate students in science who make up the primary audience. Faculty, staff, and community persons are invited to participate in this seminar series.

The Daniel B. Suter Endowment was named in honor of long-time EMU biology professor Daniel B. Suter, who is now deceased. The endowment was established in 1986 through the generous donations of alumni and friends and currently consists of over $1 million of invested funds.

Endowment income is annually divided into three categories:

  • faculty salary support through an endowed chair position, awarded to Dr. Roman J. Miller
  • program portion that provides monies for these seminars, supporting science faculty who are conducting collaborative research projects with students, and special projects
  • several named scholarships, which are annually awarded to selected students majoring in biology and chemistry
