Faculty From Five HBCUs Chosen to Participate in a Leadership Development Program

logoThe Association of American Colleges and Universities has announced that it has received a $1.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to expand its Preparing Critical Faculty for the Future Initiative. The new grant money will allow the association to include faculty from five historically Black colleges and universities in its program to prepare women in STEM disciplines for academic and administrative leadership positions.

Women faculty from Bennett College in Greensboro, North Carolina, North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro, North Carolina Central University in Durham, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in Princess Anne, and Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina, will be included in the program.

“We are grateful to the National Science Foundation for giving AAC&U the opportunity to continue providing professional and STEM leadership development to women of color faculty members at HBCUs, and to work more intensively with institutions for STEM transformation,” said AAC&U President Carol Geary Schneider.
