TSU President Melvin Johnson hosts book reception for Ace Fellow - June 17

June 17, 2009

tsu.bmp(Nashville, Tenn.)—President Melvin N. Johnson hosted a book reception June 17, 2009, for Dr. Peter Nwosu, American Council on Education (ACE) Fellow seconded to Tennessee State University, whose third book has just been released.  

The book titled Beyond Race: A New Vision of Community in America is a non-fiction work about communication, race, and public policy in America, and is designed for the general public, policy makers, students and scholars in a variety of disciplines and professions. Its subject matter focuses on America’s racial dilemma, drawing from the O. J. Simpson case to the culture gap in America, from the rise and fall of the civil rights movement to the dialogue on reparations, from America’s new immigrants to the complexities in building a color-blind society, and from the politics of racial classification to the challenge of spreading American values abroad.

The book can be purchased through the University Bookstore in the Floyd-Payne Student Center, and it will be available for sale during the reception. In addition to the TSU bookstore, it can be purchased at local booksellers.
Dr. Nwosu is one of 35 individuals selected in a national competition by the American Council on Education (ACE), the major coordinating body for U.S. higher education comprising of more than 1,600 university and college presidents, to participate in the 2008-2009 Fellows class as part of the leadership pipeline for higher education. As ACE Fellow, Dr. Nwosu served in President Johnson’s Cabinet, and provided leadership in developing the University’s 2010-2015 strategic plan titled Transforming Tennessee State University (see http://www.tnstate.edu/strategicplan).

He will conclude his ACE program at the end of June, and will return to his home institution, California State University, Northridge.

Tennessee State University Research Symposium builds bridges to inquiry - March 30-April 3

March 18, 2009

Nashville, TN – The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs at Tennessee State University is preparing for the 31st Annual University-Wide Research Symposium, March 30 through April 3, 2009.
This year’s symposium is slated to be an extraordinary five-day interdisciplinary celebration showcasing the range of faculty/staff-mentored student research that is being conducted across all academic disciplines at the University.  
The symposium highlights the range of student research through oral and poster research presentations, visual arts presentations, performing arts presentations (music, dance and theater) and demonstrations.  Workshops and tutorials will be available to participating students to help them develop competitive displays, exhibits and multi-media presentations. Students with winning presentations are eligible for awards up to $250.
With the theme, “Research: Celebrating Excellence” the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs has updated the symposium’s structure to enhance campus and community participation.  Recognizing that most research is not defined by one discipline of academic study, one of the symposium goals is to build bridges between multiple academic disciplines by creating a culture of inquiry and sharing areas of research interest.
The symposium invites students from all disciplines to submit research projects and creative work.
