CMNST Staff - F. Woodard

Faith Woodard is an Academic Advisor in the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology. Prior to Delaware State University, she was the Coordinator of Academic Advisement at Wesley College. She co-created a course in the Mathematics department to inspire students who needed to jumpstart their college preparedness. The course was so successful that the number of sections has doubled. As a result of this course, students can make the adjustments needed and acquire math skills required to be successful at the college level. Her philosophy is one of encouragement-with accountability. She brings experience from both industry and higher education. She worked as an Electrical Engineer after graduating from the University of Delaware with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering. Faith then completed her Master of Business Administration and began her career in higher education while teaching Mathematics as an adjunct instructor.  Back to the Staff DirectoryBack to College Home Page (c) 2014 CMNST, Delaware State University, Dover, DE 19901

CMNST Staff - C. Watson

Dr. Clytrice Watson is currently Interim Dean for the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology (CMNST). A professor in the Department of Biological Sciences and previous Associate Dean for Student Success in the College of Mathematics, Natural Sciences & Technology, Dr. Watson possesses a Ph.D., Microbiology/Food Microbiology from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, Princess Anne, MD; an M.S., Biology, Delaware State University, Dover, DE and a B.S., Biology from Norfolk State University, Norfolk, VA. She also received a Certificate of Academic Leadership from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, Washington, DC. In addition to being a tenured faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences, Dr. Watson serves as Director of the Research and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) and the EPSCoR (Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) undergraduate and high school summer research programs. Past positions of leadership include the Director of the Forensic Biology program, Associate Director for the MARC U*STAR program and the Director for Student Support and Scholarship. Her commitment to graduate and undergraduate research and mentoring is evident as numerous students have transitioned through her laboratory, thus making presentations at local, regional and national conferences. Dr. Watson was recently awarded the 2014 Excellence Award for Advising as a result of her dedication to advising and student success. Extramural funding includes the NSF Targeted Infusion grant, NSF Scholarships in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S-STEM) and the NSF EPSCoR for the state of Delaware.              Back to the Staff Directory Back to College Home Page    

Bridge to the Doctorate

Bridge To The Doctorate Program Beginning Fall 2015 Philadelphia Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) is in search of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students to pursue graduate degrees. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Bridge to the Doctorate (BTD) program promotes the participation of underrepresented minority students in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The BTD program provides financial, academic and professional support while ensuring scholars build the connections and skills needed to excel in a chosen STEM career. Selected students will be provided with fellowships for 2 years** Eligible applicants All interested candidates must: Have participated in an LSAMP Program as an undergraduate Have obtained a degree in a STEM discipline from an LSAMP institution by May 2015 Be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident Have at least a 3.0 GPA Have not yet begun graduate studies Pursue a Master’s Degree in a STEM discipline at DSU and continue into PhD studies Simultaneously apply to...

AAC MathStudyHelp

A solid foundation in mathematics is essential to your continuing success as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) major. Historically, research has suggested a strong correlation between a student's performance in mathematics, critical thinking/problem solving skills and retention within the STEM major over the course of a college student's undergraduate experience. Math, especially, tends to be a challenging subject area (a gatekeeper course, preventing a student from going forward if it is not successfully passed) so getting help early and as often as necessary is key to your success as a future STEM professional. There are several on-campus resources available that can provide you with in-person, as well as on-line help with learning fundamental concepts. Speak to your academic advisor for assistance in identifying what options may work best for you.   Below is a compilation of websites that can help you with getting a solid understanding of important concepts in Mathematics: Mathematics   In addition, here are some other resources you should investigate:   Career Services Online Resources     Back to the AAC  webpage Back to the CMNST home page
