Carol Ormand Ph.D.

Carleton College

I earned my B.A. in Mathematics from Carleton College in 1989 and my Ph.D. in Structural Geology from the University of Minnesota in 2000. I taught geology at St. Norbert College (De Pere, WI) and Wittenberg University (Springfield, OH) for a total of five years. From 2005 to 2022, I worked at the Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College, with responsibilities related to faculty professional development, online resource development (including OERs), and research on learning.

I hope you will read and share the open access article I co-authored about Making Departments Diverse, Equitable, and Inclusive, published in the Journal of Geoscience Education in 2021.
