Actor, director and author Alan Alda is best known for his many roles on stage and screen, but the man who played Hawkeye Pierce on M*A*S*H is leaving his mark on science as well. The Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University teaches scientists how to better communicate what they are doing.  Alda inspired the institute and is a visiting professor. Now, the center is expanding and has affiliated centers at Dartmouth University and the University of Vermont. Alda spoke with WAMC’s North Country Bureau Chief Pat Bradley as the program was initiated at the University of Vermont this week. He says while it helps scientists communicate with the public, it is equally important for the public to understand scientists.

The University of Vermont has concluded that a fraternity was not responsible for a survey that asked members whom they would like to rape.

The campus chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon was closed last December and an investigation launched after a student reported the survey to university officials.

UVM said Thursday that the "Sigma Ep as an organization" was not responsible for putting the question in the survey. But other findings could lead to sanctions against the fraternity.
