BW's Margaret Stiner was invited to present her expertise at the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) Conference in Salt Lake City as part of a panel discussing the importance of incorporating the arts into the STEM Education Coalition — changing the coalition's name from STEM to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics).

Stiner and her fellow panelists argued that while it is important to promote STEM, one cannot overlook the arts as the basis of creativity and innovation.

Stiner serves as the director of BW's Academic Advising Office and is a lecturer in the English Department.
