This program provides awards to enhance the quality of science, mathematics, engineering and technology (SMET) instructional and outreach programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities as a means to broaden participation in the Nation's SMET workforce. Support is available for the implementation of comprehensive institutional approaches to strengthen SMET teaching and learning in ways that improve access to, retention within and graduation from SMET programs. Proposed activities should be the result of a careful analysis of institutional needs, address institutional and NSF goals, and have the potential to result in significant and sustainable improvements in SMET program offerings. Typical project implementation strategies include curriculum enhancement; faculty professional development; undergraduate research; academic enrichment; infusion of technology to enhance SMET instruction; collaborations with research institutions and industry; and, other activities that meet institutional needs.
