The NSF program brings together participants from different cultural, educational and disciplinary backgrounds to collaborate in developing research proposals.

Participants at the meeting included HACU Senior Vice President and COO John Moder and the following five researchers from HACU-member institutions:

  • Alejandro Torres, University of Puerto Rico Humacao
  • Serena Alexander, San Jose State University
  • Jason Douglas, San Jose State University
  • Derek Tesser, Guttman Community College, CUNY

 The program also includes the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the American Indian Higher Education Consortium, and the National Association For Equal Opportunity in Higher Education, which selected researchers for the program in addition to HACU's.
