Marieb, taking the student s perspective into ac-count has always been an integral part of her teaching style. Dr. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught Anatomy and Physiology to physical education ma-jors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Divi-sion of Holyoke Community College in 1969 after receiving her in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the Human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice.
7 To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachu-setts. It is this experience that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her publica-tions are Marieb has partnered with Benjamin Cummings for over 30 years. Her first work was Human Anatomy & physiol -ogy laboratory manual (Cat Version), which came out in 1981. In the years since, several other lab manual versions and study guides, as well as the softcover Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology textbook, have hit the campus bookstores.
8 This textbook, now in its 9th Edition , made its appearance in 1989 and is the latest expression of her commitment to the needs of students studying Human Anatomy and Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She contributes to the New Directions, New Careers Program at Holyoke Commu-nity College by funding a staffed drop-in center and by provid-ing several full-tuition scholarships each year for women who are returning to college after a hiatus or attending college for the first time and who would be unable to continue their studies without financial support.
9 She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and has underwrit-ten renovation and updating of one of the biology labs in Clapp laboratory at that college. Dr. Marieb also contributes to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she generously provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory . Recognizing the severe national shortage of nursing faculty, she underwrites the Nursing Scholars of the Future Grant Program at the 1994, Dr. Marieb received the Benefactor Award from the National Council for Resource Development, American Association of Community Colleges, which recognizes her ongoing sponsorship of student scholarships, faculty teaching awards, and other academic contributions to Holyoke Com-munity College.
10 In May 2000, the science building at Holyoke Community College was named in her Marieb is an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Additionally, while actively engaged as an author, Dr. Marieb serves as a consultant for the Benjamin Cummings Interactive Physiology CD-ROM not involved in academic pursuits, Dr. Marieb is a world traveler and has vowed to visit every country on this planet. Shorter term, she serves on the scholarship committee of the Women s Resources Center and on the board of directors of several charitable institutions in Sarasota County.
