Welcome to the Howard University Academic Affairs Research Directory. The directory is part of a systems approach to facilitate the coordination and dissemination of research opportunities throughout the university. Howard University has a "historical legacy and continued commitment to the discovery of solutions to the most complex human problems in the United States and around the world."
Research is central to such discoveries. Within the University's Academic Affairs Division the directory promotes HU research activities by highlighting faculty members' research interests and communicating these interests to funding agencies, to university administrators, to students, and to other faculty. Thus, the directory makes Howard's Academic Affairs research portfolio more visible and accessible to our students, staff, current and potential investors, funding organizations, and the public at large.
Equally important, through its indices and categorization of faculty research interests, the Directory offers a systems approach to enhance interdisciplinary research, connecting faculty with similar research interests within the different schools/colleges across campus, the surrounding area, and at institutions around the world. Toward that end, access to this Directory will be available on compact disc, on a web page dedicated to research, and as hard copy. It is my hope and expectation that the synergy created by greater awareness of colleagues' interests and activities will in itself spur new opportunities for research collaboration and external funding.
