Pro-Life Science and Technology Conference

Conference organizers are seeking submissions for this year’s Pro-Life Science and Technology Conference to be held at the Engineers Club in Dayton, Ohio on Saturday, 10 September 2011.  This annual conference is an ideal venue for students who wish to expand their academic portfolio with peer-reviewed presentation and publication opportunities.  Faculty colleagues and students involved in the sciences may wish to submit a paper proposal to conference organizers through this website: http://www.prolifetechnology.org/.  I would be happy to assist UFL colleagues with submitting a proposal and/or making arrangements for travel and accommodations once in the Dayton metropolitan area.

Dr. Jeff Koloze

Dr. Jeff Koloze (English, Kent State University) is president and founder of Koloze Consultants, whose objective is "...to conduct research on the life issues for presentation and publication." Before his retirement under STRS (Ohio) in 2014, Dr. Koloze was Associate Professor of English at the Cleveland, Ohio Campus of South University. His most recent administrative position was Campus College Chair for the College of Humanities, the College of Natural Sciences, and the College of Social Sciences from 2005-2011 at the Columbus, Ohio Campus of the University of Phoenix; in 2009 he was appointed one of twelve senior research fellows for that institution. Dr. Koloze has taught communications, undergraduate and graduate English, and humanities courses since 1989 at several colleges and universities in the Cleveland, Columbus, and Springfield, Ohio metropolitan areas.
