    Since the earliest days of my career, I have worked to develop programs to strengthen undergraduate science education. As Director of Faculty Development in Instruction at West Virginia University, I was instrumental in enhancing a new approach to teaching problem-solving. Much of my work at Tulane University involved building a partnership with Xavier to create new interdisciplinary centers including the Center for Bioenvironmental Research. As Chair of Louisiana EPSCoR, I played a key role in forming partnerships between research-intensive universities and predominantly undergraduate institutions to enhance research competitiveness and to engage undergraduate minority students in research. During that time, Louisiana’s per scientist federal funding grew from 38% to 90% of US average. As Senior Vice President for Resource Development at Xavier, I have worked to enhance Xavier’s research capacity as well as funding for the revision of educational programs and I have nurtured professional relationships with intra- and inter-university research administrators and faculty to achieve strategic goals and funding levels. As a direct result of these efforts, Xavier is now ranked among the top 10 HBCUs in the nation in NIH funding.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
