Outcomes of previous Faculty Research Exchange visits include recruitment of graduate students, submitted proposals and funded joint grants.
ISU faculty exchanges have taken place between 1890 Land-Grant Institutions and Iowa State University. Participating were:
- Zackary N. Senwo, Alabama A & M, visited Ali Tabatabai and others in the Department of Agronomy at ISU to analyze soil samples, learned new lab procedures and completed a joint proposal to submit.
- Andrew Manu, Department of Agronomy at ISU, visited Rory Fraser and others of the Plant and Soil Science Departments at Alabama A & M regarding international projects, present and potential graduate students and to present a seminar on soils, soil fertility and management for the Master Gardener’s Program. This visit resulted in recruitment of graduate students to ISU and ISU and Alabama A & M students participating in a soil science and ecology study abroad to Ghana.
- Leonard Williams, Alabama A & M, worked at ISU with Aubrey Mendonca, Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, on environmental stress-adaptation and virulence of food borne pathogenic bacteria.
- Makuba Lihono of the University of Arkansas Pine Bluff worked at ISU with Aubrey Mendonca, Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, to prepare a joint proposal and learn new laboratory techniques. The visit resulted in Lihono teaching new laboratory techniques to his students at UAPB and a student from UAPB participated in the ISU summer internship program.
Partnership with agribusiness to advance diversity began in 1998. Faculty from the 1890 universities explored opportunities for their students and faculty with Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc. Pioneer personnel learned about the academic and internship programs at the universities. Both Pioneer and ISU have internship programs for minority students.
The College of Agriculture at ISU and personnel from Pioneer Hi-Bred will participate in the Association of Research Directors Symposium in Atlanta in April, 2003.
The 1890 Land-Grant Institutions were created as a result of the Second Morrill Act of 1890, expanding the 1862 system of land-grant universities to include historically black institutions. Although Tuskegee University is not a land-grant institution, it traditionally has been associated with the black land-grant institutions.
