Dr. Linda B. Hayden, Principle Investigator of the Center of Excellence in Remote Sensing Education and Research (CERSER) at Elizabeth City State University, presented a paper entitled:

"Identifying an Important Source of Talented Students from Underrepresented Communities Through Effective Partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions".

This paper was coauthored with Dr. Don Walter of South Carolina State University and Dr. William Porter of Elizabeth City State University.

Abstract - The paper creates a dialog related to efforts within the Space Science and Earth Science Enterprises to work with HBCU/MIs in enhancing their ability to effectively navigate the solicitation and funding process within major agencies including NASA and The National Science Foundation. Relevant issues will be discussed including HBCU/MI science infrastructure, faculty long range research strategy, and diversity of mentoring models for underrepresented minority students. The establishment of successful partnerships between HBCU/MIs and government laboratories, majority universities and other institutions will also be discussed. Examples will be presented from current and past experiences HBCU/MIs including results from the NASA MUCERPI 2003 Space Science solicitation and NASA Research Announcements in Earth Science.
