Presentation Transcript

  1. Broadening Participation • Tom Brady – Potential Activities for ’07 Budget • Sally O’Conner – Cyber Tools for Undergraduate Education

  2. Broadening ParticipationFY 2007 • Goal: Increase the number of proposals submitted to BIO from individuals from groups under-represented in those areas of the Biological Sciences supported by NSF

  3. Broadening Participation BIO RESPONSIBILITY • INDEPENDENT RESEARCHERS • POSTDOCS • GRADUATE STUDENTS • UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS

  4. BIO Research Proposals and Funding 1999-2004

  5. National STEMProduction of Ph.D.’s as a Percentage of Domestic Ph.D.’s

  6. Comparison of the Number of Doctoral Recipients in Selected Sciences and Engineering  2003 *Includes individuals who did not report their citizenship at time of survey. (Source: Survey of Earned Doctorates Summary Report 2003).

  7. Broadening Participation • Research Grants • QEM Workshops • CAA/RIG • Minority Postdocs • *CREST • *Graduate Supplements for Broadening Participation • *Undergraduate Mentorships for Broadening Participation

  8. QEM Workshops • Three year award • Two workshops per year • Focused on Faculty from Underrepresented Groups and those at Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs)

  9. Research Initiation Grants Career Advancement Awards • Broadening Participation – Faculty from underrepresented groups or minority serving institutions • RIG – New Investigators • CAA – May have previously been PI • $150k, 24 months, $25k equipment

  10. Minority Postdocs • Increase the number of research scientists from underrepresented minority groups • Awards for research and training • Applicants choose sponsoring scientist and provide research/training plan • 2-3 Year Awards • $50K/yr • $4K Travel Grant • $50K Starter Grant

  11. *Graduate Supplements • Supplements to Current or New Research Awards • Students from Underrepresented Groups • Up to 3 years • $37K per year - $27K stipend, $10K for research • Attract New Students into Graduate School

  12. *CRESTCenters for Research Excellence in Science and Technology • Partner with EHR (Directorate for Education and Human Resources) • Joint Competition • Establish up to 5 new CREST Centers with a Biological Focus

  13. CRESTCenters for Research Excellence in Science and Technology GOALS • Build Research Capability at Minority Serving Institutions • Build Strength in Specific Research Area • Develop Knowledge • Expand Diverse Student Presence in STEM Fields

  14. Competitive Proposals • Unifying research Focus • Long-term institutional objectives & priorities consistent with project • Potential to reach national standards of excellence • Ability to produce demonstrable achievements within award period • Potential to develop National Competitiveness

  15. Focus • Attract Faculty • Secure Instrumentation • Faculty Start-up Packages • Robust Metrics • Leverage Partnerships • Integrate Across NSF Research Directorates

  16. Current CREST Centers (14)

  17. CREST centers pursuing biology related research • California State University at Los Angeles • New Mexico State University • Alabama A&M University • Texas A&M University - Kingsville • University of Puerto Rico - Rio Piedras

  18. California State University Los Angeles • Center for Environmental Analysis (CES-CREST) • CEA-CREST team formulated spatially explicit model of predator-prey dynamics

  19. New Mexico State University • Center for Research Excellence in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (BCB) • Among the first minority institutions with research center in bioinformatics and the first BCB program in New Mexico

  20. Alabama A&M University • Center for Forest Ecosystems Assessment (CFEA) • Intellectual benefits of CFEA shared with greater community of scholars, students, and practitioners of natural resource science and policy

  21. Texas A&M University - Kingsville • Research on the Environmental sustainability of semi-arid coastal areas (RESSACA) • Minority student involvement at graduate level of environmental engineering, integration of research and education, and environmental research as pertains to public policy

  22. University of Puerto Rico – Rio Piedras • Center for Tropical Applied Ecology and Conservation at the University of Puerto Rico • Multidisciplinary groups work together to solve complex environmental problems facing the tropics, with emphasis on the Caribbean

  23. Research Centers in Minority Institutions • The National Center for Research Resources (NIH-NCRR) provides RCMI grants to expand research capacity in colleges and universities that: • Have 50% or greater enrollment • of students underrepresented in • the biomedical sciences • Award doctoral degrees in the • health professions or health- • related sciences

  24. Research Centers in Minority Institutions (NIH/NCRR) • Tuskegee University • Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science • Howard University • Florida A&M University • Clark Atlanta University • Morehouse School of Medicine • University of Hawaii • Morgan State University • Jackson State University • City College, CUNY (two Centers) • Universidad Central del Caribe • University of Puerto Rico, Medical Sciences Campus • Ponce School of Medicine • Meharry Medical College • Texas Southern University • University of Texas, El Paso • University of Texas, San Antonio

  25. Research Centers in Minority Institutions (NIH/NCRR)

  26. Undergraduate Mentoring in the Biological Sciences • Enhancement activities that will prepare students for a scientific career including graduate studies • Mentoring activities that will ensure the successful completion of students in the program • Research and field experiences • $600K/4yrs

  27. Treisman Model • Focus on excellence, rather than adequacy • Collaborative learning • Faculty sponsorship

  28. UMBC Meyerhoff Scholars Program The Meyerhoff Program seeks to increase the number of minorities, particularly African-Americans, who earn doctoral degrees in the sciences, mathematics, computer science, and engineering. • Open to all highly-achieving minority high school seniors with an interest in graduate study in the sciences or engineering. • The program currently holds approximately 180 students. • 95% of graduating Meyerhoff Scholars immediately enter into professional and graduate schools.

  29. Structure of the Meyerhoff Scholarship Program • Scholarship support for all students • The Summer Bridge Program prior to entrance, featuring academic coursework, time management coursework, and social networking activities. • Research experience • Interaction with a practicing professional mentor • Personal interaction with UMBC faculty and staff • Special academic support, cultural enrichment, and career-oriented workshops
