Faculty Development



HBCU-UP Program has instituted many faculty development components. Listed below are the activities which are intended to help faculty enhance their teaching and research capabilities.


  • Travel to Scientific Meetings: HBCU-UP provides support for STEM faculty members to attend and present research studies at local and national conferences. This initiative aims to broaden and strengthen STEM faculty research development and initiate research collaborations with research intense universities.
  • Technology Training Workshops: This initiative allows STEM faculty to receive continual training in computer technology integrations and computer-enhanced learning (eLearning). This enables faculty to utilize advance technology to provide an enhanced and interactive lecture environment for delivery of course materials to students.
  • Grants Writing Workshops: This activity allows STEM faculty to gain valuable knowledge on the process of writing and submitting an effective and competitive grant. Through this initiative, we aim to increase the number of STEM faculty in writing persuasive proposals to successfully secure external funds.
  • Instrumentation Workshops: Faculty are provided detailed knowledge and use of instrumentations such as real time PCR machine, nanodrop machine, atomic force microscope, immunofluorescence microscope, transform infrared spectrometer, differential scanning calorimeter , and other state of the art technology in research applications and teaching.
  • Scientific Seminar Lecture Series: Guest scientists from several research intense universities/institutions are invited throughout the academic year to share their research knowledge and expertise with STEM faculty at ASU. Faculty are able to discuss potential partnerships and research collaborative efforts with visiting scientists.  
  • STEM Faculty of the Year Award: This award is designed to boost faculty interest in STEM teaching, research, grant writing and most importantly, helping minority students in entering STEM as their research and career goals. One faculty will be selected each year during the fall faculty conference and presented a plaque and a travel award to attend a national scientific meeting.
