Review of Army Research Laboratory Programs for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions
National Academies Press
"Review of Army Research Laboratory Programs for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions" examines the ways in which historically black colleges and universities and minority institutions have used the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) funds to enhance the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs at their institutions over the past decade. This report also considers which program elements reflect practices that are effective for assisting these institutions in enhancing the STEM programs and could be considered by other Department of Defense agencies for application to their programs. The Army Research Laboratory has contributed to building up the human and infrastructural capacities in the past, and this report looks for ways to enhance ARL program impact on institution-building in the future, confident that more capable black and minority-serving institutions will, in turn, help America as a whole develop a more diverse and intellectually capable STEM workforce. The following are appended: (1) Observations Gleaned from Discussions with Representatives of Selected Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions; (2) Summary Description of Army Research Laboratory Collaborative Research Programs; (3) Biographical Sketches of Members of the Committee; and (4) Acronyms. [This paper was written by the Committee on Review of Army Research Laboratory Programs for Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority Institutions, the Army Research Laboratory Technical Assessment Board, the Laboratory Assessments Board, and the Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences.]
