Project Name:

Preparing Tomorrow’s Minority Task Force in Coastal Resilience Through Interdisciplinary Education, Research and Curriculum Development

Other Research Participants/Partners:

UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Charlotte and Jackson State University

Project Description:

In this DHS-funded program we aim to emulate the integrative and interdisciplinary nature of real-world problems with our project-based courses and summer camps. This program aims at preparing tomorrow’s minority task force in coastal resilience (almost all of JCSU students are minorities) by presenting tailored courses in coastal resilience, applied research experience, knowledge transfer activities, scientific seminars, and summer camps. Project-supported courses are designed to introduce engineering and data analytics to better understand coastal resilience. Summer camps, seminars and undergraduate research projects are powerful tools used to engage all students and all disciplines in addressing coastal resilience issues.

Research Interests:

Increasing student enrollment and retention in Computer Science and Engineering
