Locations of visitors
Monthly Archives: February 2011
UNC system President Tom Ross made his first official visit to North Carolina A&T on Friday. His full day of meetings with administrators, faculty, staff and students ended with a quick tour of labs at the Fort IRC.
The Office of Research Services is offering a workshop next week on how to review published, scholarly works and search the NIH and NSF sites for funded, published research. The program will include a real-life example of how to conduct a literature search for a NIH proposal.
The workshop will be held on Thursday, March 3, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., in the Fort IRC, room 410. To register, go to the Research Services training website. Presentations and presenters:
- Reviewing the published, scholarly works — Nina Exner, F.D. Bluford Library;
- Reviewing the NIH and NSF Sites — Nora Shively, Office of Research Services;
- Putting It All Together: A Real-Life Example — Dr. Jenora Waterman, Department of Animal Sciences.
The Sponsored Funding Report for January:
North Carolina A&T received 14 grants totaling $579,887 during the month. The FY2011 total now stands at $36.5 million as of January 31 (January and February are typically the slowest months).
One highlight of the month’s funding was $135,000 from the North Carolina Division of Child Development to Rosemarie Vardell of the Department of Family & Consumer Sciences.
The project: Developing a Framework for Culturally Responsive Early Childhood Curricula and Public Policies.
The issue: North Carolina has not yet achieved its goal of providing high quality, culturally responsive early childhood education for all children. Children of color often receive limited benefit from being educated in environments that cannot provide the diversity of experiences that reflect their culture, family values, and learning styles. There continues to be a disparity between the race, ethnicity and culture of the leadership in the field and the children served, limiting the representation of the needs and strengths of teachers and children of color.
Abstract: This project engages a diverse group of early childhood professionals in a Collaborative Learning Community process to identify a framework and guidelines for culturally responsive curricula, teaching practices, program assessment and related local and state early care and education policies.

Busloads of school children arrived at the Cherry Building this morning for Energy Day, part of A&T’s Engineering Week activities. While faculty members delivered lessons in bioenergy, hydropower, hydrogen fuel cells, and other topics, Duke Energy provided a nice introduction to the concept of green energy: the all-electric Tesla roadster (0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds, zero tailpipe emissions … you can pick one up for about $101,000).
Among the groups providing displays and presentations were the NOAA ISET center, College of Engineering, and the Waste Management Institute. The annual event is organized by the Center for Energy Research and Technology.
The Library will participate in the 22nd National African American Read-In tomorrow from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Bluford Library Seminar Room. The event is an effort to make African American literacy a part of Black History Month. All members of the A&T community are invited to read from works written by African American authors. For details, see the Lunch and Literature blog.
Scandal comes to Chapel Hill, and what happens? Epidemiologist Bonnie Yankaskas gets punished. Football coach Butch Davis gets a big hug from the chancellor. How different are the two cases? The editor of The News & Observer gives his opinion.
Dr. Stephanie Luster-Teasley has been named one of the Triad’s 40 Leaders Under 40 for 2011. The Business Journal announced the award winners in its February 18 edition.
Luster-Teasley is an environmental engineer and an assistant professor in the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering. Her research focuses on water and wastewater treatment, remediation of soil and groundwater, and air pollution.
“The awards honor 40 remarkable individuals , all under the age of 40, who have distinguished themselves in their careers and community involvement, and who hold promise of even greater things to come,” The Business Journal says.
For more information on Luster-Teasley, see the A&T news release.
Twenty-one high school students are at the Fort IRC today for the DORED Black History Month event, The Colors of Innovation. The students are touring labs and learning about research, innovation and African American inventors. This afternoon, they’ll hear from the first African American woman to receive a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, Dr. Sandra Johnson of IBM (IEEE Fellow, ACM Distinguished Engineer and member of the IBM Academy of Technology, an honor given to the top 1% of IBM’s technical staff). The event was organized by a group led by Cathy Jones of the Office of Sponsored Programs and Louis Judge, director of outreach and tech transfer.
