Historically Black Colleges and Universities

Preamble

IntellADAPT has identified projects that are specifically designed for HBCUs in 2017.  In particular, there are participatory opportunities for individuals and groups to sponsor and partner with intellADAPT in addressing crucial education and health issues in minority communities.  The opportunities are generally in the following categories: STEM or STEAM Courses Development; Academic Program Implementation Projects; Proposed Conferences and Workshops (Webinars, Certificate Programs, etc); Adaptive 2.0 Learning Research and Related Technologies; Philanthropic and Foundation Sponsorship Opportunities; and Medical and Prehealth Education Interventions. 

Current statistics on people of color in the STEM/STEAM careers are appalling to say the least. IntellADAPT has the capacity, technology, expertise and resources (intellectual and physical) to address these concerns and more.  Inquiries that include ideas and the possibility of forming partnerships with intellADAPT in the areas cited are strongly encouraged.  Please contact Dr. Charles McClinton, VP for Program Development at Charles@intellADAPT.com

STEM or STEAM Course Development

 
 

HBCUx or HBCOnLINE.com

intellADAPT proposes to partner with a consortium of HBCUs to develop an educational eco-system that provides necessary scaffolding for students to choose and succeed in the STEM fields forming the HBCUx consortium (similar to the EdX consortium).   Ten basic competency courses (B-10) will be given to freshmen students who have joined the HBCUx or HBCUOnLINE.com through their respective institutions with the intention of pursuing STEM degree programs. The basic-ten (B-10) courses are Physics I and II, Statistics, Algebra I, Calculus I and II, Chemistry, Organic Chemistry and Biology I and II.

 
 

Academic Program Implementation Projects

 
 

iMBA One-Year Online Program

This is a one-year online Master of Business Administration program that has operated internationally for a number of years.  intellADAPT along with the sponsoring institution will be offering a naming opportunity for the primary investor as well as ROI opportunities.  HBCUs lag behind their national counterparts in the proliferation of online education. As a result, proponents of equal access and quality instruction may be led to believe HBCUs are neglecting the needs of their unique student populations by “lagging” behind larger, more resourced institutions.” [HBCUs should Implement Online Education With Caution, New America: Education Policy, Evans-Bell, Denzel, February 2015]

 
 

Proposed Conference and Workshop

 

UMASS- Boston / intellADAPT HBCU President Summit

The University of Massachusetts-Boston (UMASS-Boston) along with intellADAPT is seeking funding of $44,200 to defray and/or cover expenses for 15 -20 presidents at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) to attend, what could become known as the most significant technology and learning conference during this decade. The event, “An HBCU Presidential Summit: Empowering Stem Education Using Innovations in Educational Technology”, will be held at the University of Massachusetts Boston on June 23– 25, 2017.

 
 

Adaptive 2.0 Learning Research and Research Related Technologies

 

Brainwave Adaptive 2.0 LearningTechnology Project

IntellADAPT, a Boston basedBrainwave Adaptive Learning Technology company, is the first Brain-computer interface for Adaptive Learning using an EEG Head band. With funding provided by the National Science Foundation, its products are based on cognitive learning theories, big data analytics and the latest brainwave science to perform real-time analytics and drive deep comprehension.  The company has custom and off-the-shelf courseware in STEM subjects.  The subjects are specific to grades 11-12 and 1st and 2nd years of college/university level courses.  Funding is requested to address marketing and sales of intellADAPT products in order to penetrate the markets indicated.

 
 

Pre-Health Education Projects

 

Develop Office of Education inthe National Medical Association

“The National Medical Association (NMA) is the largest and oldest national organization representing African American physicians and their patients in the United States. The NMA is a 501(c) (3) national professional and scientific organization representing the interests of more than 50,000 African American physicians and the patients they serve. NMA is committed to improving the quality of health among minorities and disadvantaged people through its membership, professional development, community health education, advocacy, research and partnerships with federal and private agencies. Throughout its history the National Medical Association has focused primarily on health issues related to African Americans and medically underserved populations; however, its principles, goals, initiatives and philosophy encompass all ethnic groups.”  However, the association does not provide direct educational support to prospective young African Americans seeking careers in medicine or other health professions.  It would be highly effective if the primary source of educational opportunities in the health and medical professions was a focus on interest of this association since its membership is composed primarily of African American physicians.

In earlier discussions with key administrators and NMA members, it was indicated that the Association maybe willing to establish an office of education, if funding is provided.
