Final Report on a Program to Expand Research Participation of Faculty and Students at the Atlanta University Center.
Atlanta Univ., GA. Graduate School of Education.
A project to expand the participation in research by the education faculty of the member institutions in the Atlanta University Center is described. The primary objective was to provide an opportunity for black scholars to participate in research with emphasis on issues confronting black communities in the 1980s. The focus was to enhance the research skills of the scholars and to create a positive climate to promote research activities. Five research teams were organized, with a total of 13 faculty members and eight students. In addition to team research activities, six seminars/workshops were sponsored. A 90 percent participation level by faculty and students was achieved. Outcomes of these activities include the following: four proposals were written and submitted to outside agencies for funding; participants took part in faculty development activities (e.g., postgraduate courses) for the purpose of enhancing their research skills; one participant presented a paper at a national conference on blacks in higher education; the faculty retreat research activity has been institutionalized; and a new curriculum for preparing teachers has been instituted. Information on seminar topics and presenters as well as the work agenda and participants of the research teams is appended. (Author/SW)
