Research Week 2017 - Addressing Contemporary Issues for Africans and African Americans in the Curriculum


The Howard University Armour J. Blackburn Center - The Digital Auditorium

Jessica Onuzo will briefly present the life, education and work of scientist Marie Maynard Daly and mathematician Dudley Weldon Woodard. Why is this important? Even though there are, and have been African American scholars throughout history, the works of African Americans still remain invisible in the STEM curriculum. Students might learn about African Americans in Civics courses but are pleasantly surprised to learn that the famous names that they might have heard of have significant STEM achievements attached to them. Presentation will be followed by a panel discussion.

Research Week 2017- A Showcase of Research by HU-ADVANCE-IT Mini Grant recipients


The Howard University Interdisciplinary Research Building

Over the past five years, HU ADVANCE-IT has provided seed funding to women in STEM researchers in the form of $10,000 mini grants. The purpose of our mini grant program is to have an immediate impact on women faculty in STEM’s access to discretionary funds for research. These funds were meant to be used to catalyze collaborations, to attend meetings, and to provide bridge funding for research in between research grant awards.
