Dr. Mildred Ofosu Elected Chair of National Council Building Research at Minority Serving Institutions

Morgan State Associate Vice President of Sponsored Programs Mildred Ofosu was recently elected as chair of the Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Education Institutions (HBCU/MEI) Council of the Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU). Dr. Ofosu will head a consortium of 26 historically black colleges and universities and minority serving institutions nationwide, all engaged in high research activity and positioning for partnerships with federal and corporate partnerships.

“As the Steering Committee Chair, my vision for the HBCU/MEI Council is to have all minority education institutions obtain the capacity required to earn membership with and benefit from ORAU’s services and programs,” says Dr. Ofosu.  “The HBCU/MEI institutions need to increase and enhance research careers for faculty and students in STEM fields.”

According to a release, members of the HBCU/MEI Council are all engaged in leading-edge science and technology and are recognized as competitive and strategic business partners.

Dr. Ofosu will serve a council chair until March 2014
