NORTH CAROLINA ALLIANCE TO CREATE OPPORTUNITY THROUGH EDUCATION

  • HISTORY of the NC OPT-ED Program

  • 1999: Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) grant – then called -- Minority Graduate Education (MGE) Program

    • North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University (NC A&T) and North Carolina State University (NCSU) - joint AGEP

    • University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH) - independent AGEP

  • 2000: NCSU, UNC-CH and NC A&T began a formal alliance, and later that year decided to integrate this universityalliance with all other NSF-HRD supported programs in North Carolina – called the North Carolina Alliance to Create Opportunity Through Education (OPT-ED)

  • 2001: OPT-ED received an AGEP supplement to begin implementing a number of joint programs and to hire an Alliance coordinator

  • 2005: NC A&T, NCSU and UNC-CH received AGEP Phase II funding to expand and continue NC OPT-ED

NORTH CAROLINA ALLIANCE TO CREATE OPPORTUNITY THROUGH EDUCATION

  • Goals

  • OPT-ED constituent programs operate both individually and cooperatively to broaden participation and diversify the STEM workforce and academe by encouraging underrepresented minority students, from middle school through graduate school to achieve the PhD, and ultimately enter the professoriate in one of the STEM disciplines.

  • Serving as a catalyst for greater synergy among these NSF-sponsored partners, NC OPT-ED strengthens their collaboration and cooperation for excellence in STEM education and research, promoting activities that magnify their efforts to achieve common goals.

North Carolina Mathematics and Science Education Network (MSEN)

The NC-MSEN Pre-College Program, which targets traditionally underserved students, prepares middle and high school students to achieve high standards in mathematics and science and seeks to cultivate interest in postsecondary education. The NC-MSEN, having received NSF funding for their Pre-College Research Experience Project, became an initial NC OPT-ED partner and due to the continued importance of preparing young scholars in STEM disciplines, NC-MSEN remains a key partner. The NC-MSEN program operates at the following North Carolina institutions:

East Carolina University

Elizabeth City State University

Fayetteville State University

North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University

North Carolina State University

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Western Carolina University

Winston Salem State University

Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate Programs (HBCU-UP)

The HBCU-UP funding provides awards to enhance the quality of STEM instructional and outreach programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities as a means to broaden participation in the nation’s STEM workforce. North Carolina currently has six (6) HBCU-UP awards, the largest number of awards garnered by any state. Presently, HBCU-UP projects exist at the following North Carolina institutions:

Bennett College

Johnson C. Smith University

North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University

North Carolina Central University

Saint Augustine’s College

Winston Salem State University

Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP)

The North Carolina Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (NC-LSAMP) is a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, regional partnership comprised of eight (8) institutions within the University of North Carolina system. The chief aim of the alliance is to significantly increase the quantity and quality of underrepresented minority students earning a B.S. in STEM disciplines. It is also the intent of the alliance to encourage these students to subsequently pursue M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in these fields. NC-LSAMP participating institutions includes:

Fayetteville State University

North Carolina Central University

North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University

North Carolina State University

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

University of North Carolina at Charlotte

University of North Carolina at Pembroke

Winston Salem State University

Centers for Research in Science and Technology (CREST)

The CREST center for Advanced Materials and Smart Structures (CAMSS) which operates at two institutions in the University of North Carolina system seeks to create cross-disciplinary infrastructure that transcends departmental, institutional, industrial, and governmental barriers and lends itself to the integration of research and education in the vital field of smart and advanced materials. In accomplishing these ends significant emphasis is placed on integration with NSF Diversity Focused programs addressing the STEM continuum. The North Carolina CREST project involves the following North Carolina institutions:

North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University

North Carolina State University
