High school students participate in DU’s fourth Annual Forensic Science camp

Detroit-area high school students enjoyed Davenport’s fourth annual Forensic Science summer camp June 27-July 1 at the Warren Campus. At this camp, students solve a simulated murder using entomology (study of insects, like the life cycle of the fly), blood typing, forensic bone analysis (determining sex, race, etc. by analysis of the skeleton) and DNA analysis using gel electrophoresis. The case scenario features three missing persons so first students have to identify the victim before narrowing down a field of suspects to determine the guilty perpetrator(s). Pictured are Professor Bill Schram, and Joshua Cooper, student helper, with 13 science camp participants surrounding the unfortunate victim of the simulated crime scene.

IPEx completes program with Vibracoustic

In June, IPEx, Davenport University’s corporate training department, completed an eight month program with two cohorts from Vibracoustic, a global automotive manufacturer.  This program, for leaders and emerging leaders in their Morganfield, Kentucky plant, was made up of two different groups participating in a different training session each month. On July 14, IPEx will participate in a graduation ceremony for the participants of this program.

This is the second year that Vibracoustic’s Kentucky complex has provided this extensive training program to site leaders and high-potential future leaders within their organization. The program consists of IPEx’s Leadership Essentials and Leadership Mastery curricula. These are highly sought-after and cutting-edge topics on necessary skills for leading and managing in today’s workplace. Custom facilitation makes the topics relevant across the broad spectrum of industries which IPEx serves.

The partnership between IPEx and Vibracoustic is a great example of what IPEx offers. IPEx is focused on developing long term solutions for organizations to help improve their employees’ skills and achieve their goals both personally and professionally.
