It’s #FacultyFriday! Meet Dr. Dumancas.

...

Dr. Gerard G. Dumancas is an Associate Professor of chemistry and a Huie Delmon Trust Endowed Professor of Science at LSUA. He is originally from Iloilo City, Philippines and started at LSUA in the Fall of 2016. Over the years, he has accumulated over $200,000 in research grants, generated more than 50 publications in the form of journal articles, book chapters, books, and intellectual properties, and has won seven international awards and one US national award for excellence in research.

...

Dr. Dumancas obtained his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from the University of the Philippines in 2005 and his PhD in Analytical Chemistry from Oklahoma State University in 2012. He then pursued a 2-year Postdoctoral Fellowship at Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation in Oklahoma City working in the area of chemometrics and statistical genetics.

...

“When I first came to LSUA, I saw an opportunity to write research grants and expand our STEM (biology, chemistry, math) programs. This fall, we will be acquiring brand new analytical instruments such as high-performance liquid chromatograph, atomic absorption spectrometer, as well as a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer. This campus has so much potential for growth and opportunities for everyone. Our department is very collegial, and I very much appreciate the support of our administrators.”

...

Dr. Dumancas is presently the coordinator of the chemistry program and he will be the Director of Honors Experience beginning fall 2020 at LSUA. Outside of LSUA, he is a reviewer for several National Science Foundation (NSF) research grants. Most recently, he was awarded a $72,000 research grant through the LSU LIFT2 grant program for his research that involves the development of a phone application device to detect honey authenticity in just 1-2 minutes.

...

#FunFact about Dr. Dumancas: “I think one thing many of my LSUA colleagues don’t know is that I used to join singing contests, and that I received the excellence award in music when I was in high school. I thought I was going to have a degree/career in music but instead obtained a scholarship to pursue a chemistry degree.”

...

Dr. Dumancas is a brilliant addition to LSUA’s faculty, and we are lucky to have his drive and motivation to make our campus better for all!

Happy Faculty Friday!

Meet Dr. Tanya Lueder, an instructor of math at LSUA! Dr. Lueder is originally from Eunice, Louisiana but is now a resident of Pineville with her husband and two sons. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering from LSU and was one of the top 100 freshmen entering in 1992. At LSU, she was involved in LSU Ambassadors and LSU Army Scotch Guard. She obtained a master’s degree in mathematics from LSU and a doctorate degree in computational analysis & modeling from Louisiana Tech.
...
Dr. Lueder has worked at LSUA for over ten years. “I love the coziness of LSUA. Because we have small class sizes, we are able to connect with our students. Also, we are able to work with faculty and staff to get things done quickly. I love that our administration is easy to reach and willing to listen.”
...
Over the last academic year, Dr. Lueder worked with many robotics teams – LSUA’s VEXU team, Pineville High School’s VEX VRC teams, Rapides Academy’s Beta & First League Lego Team, and Phoenix Magnet’s Beta Team. She also teaches short weekly lessons on robotics at Phoenix Magnet. She is an advocate of the Center for Teaching Excellence; the military, especially the Louisiana National Guard; and sports, especially basketball and soccer. Outside of academics, Dr. Lueder has been a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator for 15 years.
...
We are so lucky to have Dr. Lueder at LSUA! #withinreach #withoutlimits

Meet Merideth Rogers!

Originally from Logansport, Louisiana, Merideth is a senior pursuing a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Management. Check out Merideth's Q&A to learn about her story and why she loves LSUA!
...
Fun Facts about Merideth!

“I love makeup, cosmetics, skincare, anything beauty. In my spare time, I am constantly watching social media to follow trends and expand my knowledge. I have such a love for it, I have even started my own YouTube beauty vlog (video blog). Also, when I have the opportunity, I love to travel!”
...
Why did you choose LSUA?

“With LSUA, students can get a taste of college life without going to a major university and getting completely overwhelmed. Also, the diversity both in culture and age range is awesome. I couldn’t stop working and was not comfortable taking a 100% online program, but I found that LSUA offered evening classes. This was perfect! I could still work, go to school while getting a taste of university education I’d missed out on with trade school, and still do face-to-face classes.”
...
What were your favorite courses?

“As far as a favorite class, it was probably my Environmental Science and English 2002 class. Learning about sustainability and ways to help the environment was interesting, my fiancé hated it though because I started trying to eliminate all our plastic and find ways to recycle, reuse, and become more eco-friendly. The English class allowed me to be creative and express myself by creating advertising type documents. My favorite teachers would be Dr. Randall Dupont, business department chair, and Dr. Leesia Marshall, science department.”
...
What is your favorite study spot on campus?

“If I had to pick a favorite spot to study, it would be on the quad when no one is around and it is quiet!”
...
Are you involved in any on campus activities?

“I am part of the National Society for Leadership and Success. Last year, I was inducted into the Gamma Beta Phi society, and at one point I was doing bible studies with the BCM.”

Hiii boss
Come out and watch the girls play this weekend, beginning Thursday Feb 27.
Merry Christmas Greetings from Kentucky to Louisiana State University of Alexandria teachers, staff, and administrators. I started full-time online classes with LSUA in August. Everyone has been kind and supportive to help me towards my goal to earn a bachelor's degree in English. I especially want to thank Dr. Ginger Jones, Mr. Jeremy Simmons, Mr. Fred Rolfes, and their assistants who patiently guided me back into college after a long absence. I took a big leap of faith, but I landed in a great school. I look forward to a Happy New Year learning with LSUA.

STOP TRUMP’S REIGN: MAKE AMERICA SHINE AGAIN (Part 1 - Trump as a danger to American democracy) July 15, 2019 Six key points: (1.) Some would say Trump lied, so what? However, he committed more serious crimes, including tax evasion and money laundering from Russian sources, which relates to why and how he has conducted foreign policy as a TRAITOR and Russian asset, endangering our national security. (2.) Don’t vote for a Traitor and crook just because we have a low “unemployment rate”. Millions of people can’t find a job or one which pays a living wage, or only find work part time or as a temp but aren’t counted in the unemployment statistics, due to antiquated methods of count. Further, the working masses are faced with healthcare, housing and education costs rising faster than wages. (3) Another four years of Trump packing the courts with conservative judges would grow his power and leave the Congress with little power, allowing Trump to act increasingly as a dictator ignoring the Constitution and the freedoms of all of us. (4) Trump is trying to destroy the pre-existing conditions guarantees we need as a healthcare safety net, This would endanger lives. He is supported in this and almost all things by Republican sycophants in the Senate. (5) He is mentally unbalanced: hot-headed and putting us at risk of war; supportive of despots and critical of NATO, unable to keep a Cabinet or other staff, incompetent to run the government, and a chronic liar. (6) Trump and his Republican party are waging 'War on Women' and suppressing voter rights. This alone should enrage more than half the population. Trump wants to Reign as a King! ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Part 2- BIDEN IS BEST to DEFEAT TRUMP July 1. 2019 Biden has the best chance by far to defeat Trump. Certainly he can win over the working class white voters who comprise most of Trump’s base. He can also get crossover endorsements from moderate Republicans and as President work with Republicans in the Senate, having been a respected Senator for 36 years. As Vice President for eight years, he worked closely with President Obama, who entrusted him with serious tasks, unlike Trump’s prop Pence. Biden is tough and effective in debates, and could stand up to Trump, unlike Bernie Sanders- who is too easily flustered and belabors his 1 % issue too long. None of the other Democratic primary candidates have the status or experience of Biden, who can get funding and support from Democrats across the board. Biden is also well known and respected among world leaders and is the best person to repair the damage Trump has done to our international standing. He will be able to counter Russian transgressions into our democracy. Biden is a rational person who will govern as the Constitution and the rule of law requires, and not as a tyrant like Trump. Biden also has the ability to run the government efficiently and to unify the nation and heal the wounds that Trump created and exploited. We must unify as an electorate and ensure that an honorable and competent President will be elected in 2020. In short, if we have 20-20 vision, Biden is our best bet. Two more points of late: (1) If another primary contender, in this case Kamala Harris, plays the race card and savages Biden for a questionable policy mistake from the 1970's whereas he has a stellar civil rights record for the last 40 years, we run the risk of ironically setting up an easy victory for Trump in the general election. "Gentleman Joe" did not attack Harris on her controversial record on criminal justice in California which runs counter to her purported defense of minority interests. (2) Several of Biden's primary opponents have "pie in the sky" proposals that can't work and are too costly, such as "medicare for all". Biden's health insurance plan has a public option while keeping private plans as a viable choice, and lowering drug prices. Remember, we have one champion to choose in the big battle for the White House. We should chose a contender on rationale and not on blind idealism.
