Congratulations to Dr. Revathy Kumar (Professor Educational Psychology) who is part of the team being awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur (OH-09) joined the National Science Foundation (NSF) to announce the award of $123,859 to The University of Toledo to “develop practical strategies for broadening the participation of African American students in engineering.” The project will conduct a comparative study of the factors affecting the success and pathways to engineering careers of underrepresented minority students at both The University of Toledo and Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University.
This project, entitled “Collaborative Research: Research Initiation: Factors Affecting Underrepresented Minority Student Success and Pathways to Engineering Careers at Majority and Minority Institutions,” is under the direction of the project’s principal investigator, Lesley Berhan, Associate Professor in the department of Mechanical, Industrial, and Manufacturing Engineering. Berhan is joined by Revathy Kumar, Professor of Educational Psychology, and Willie McKether, Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion, both co-principal investigators.
