Following up on @EADHistory's thread we want to share our work in Marketing the History Major from #AHA20 #s279. From 2013 to 2016 we had a 27% decline in major numbers; since 2016 we are up 12% for majors and up 20% when you include minors with majors. 1/19
We currently have the most juniors we've had since 2013. From 2013 to 2016 there were 39% fewer HIST majors reaching junior standing @UofOklahoma. Since 2016, there are 42% more HIST majors reaching junior standing. We're adding (avg) 2+ HIST grads, 9 majors every spring 2/19
Our work in reversing this decline has 3 aspects: curricular changes; supporting professional advising; and targeted data outreach.
Curricular: in 2009 we added 2 majors-only courses to help create community among our students + bolster their skills. 3/19

Stoked to announce @ZooKeys_Journal published our @BatumiRaptors data paper! It explains how our #citizenscience project monitors the autumn #migration of >1.000.000 #raptors in the Eastern Black Sea Flyway, and how to use our #openaccess data @GBIF/@NLBIF! - 1/n

#ornithology
Many #raptors migrate primarily by thermal #soaring. To do so they travel by day and avoid high mtns and open sea. This leads to spectacular raptor aggregations in overland #flyways. One of the world´s largest raptor flyways occurs along the eastern Black Sea coast in SW Georgia.
The Eastern Black Sea Flyway has its narrowest point just north of #Batumi, where the coast and Lesser Caucasus form a clear "bottleneck". The mtns are not extremely high but present a significant barrier for #raptors on #migration due to low and dense cloud cover. @BatumiRaptors

What do #interns do in the Directorate of Science & Technology? How can #STEM #students drive innovation that affects the national security of our nation? We spoke with an undergraduate scholarship intern, “Alice,” about her experience. #NationalSTEMDay

Alice: "This is a great #internship because you’re treated like an employee...They want to enable you and challenge you, so they put you on teams and give you work that impacts the #mission."

Alice: "I previously didn’t know that CIA recruited #engineers. My #STEM background has laid a foundation for all positions I’ve held within CIA, and many of my project leads have been happy to expand my knowledge further."
