INFORMATION STATEMENT

The faculty profiles contained in this monograph, the second edition of the Tuskegee University College of Arts And Sciences Research Directory, have been compiled from information provided by faculty or from sources believed to be reliable as of March 2014. The request for information from the faculty was sent through the Council of CAS Department Heads in August 2013. If a profile was not received by the deadline, one was created using information from departmental websites. Final drafts of the profiles were sent electronically to faculty members for their review and comment. However, in the event that the content of the profile is displayed incorrectly or requires updating, please contact our office directly (cas@mytu.tuskegee.edu ).

INTRODUCTION
Welcome to the Tuskegee University College of Arts and Sciences Research Directory. The directory is part of a systems approach to facilitate the coordination and dissemination of scholarly opportunities within the College of Arts and Sciences. Tuskegee 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. Scholarly activity and research are central to such discoveries. Within the University‘s College of Arts and Sciences the directory promotes scholarship 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 the College of Arts and Sciences 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 the College of Arts and Sciences web page, 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 scholarly collaboration and external funding.
