Event description

Description

The Faculty Conference on Research and Teaching Excellence (FCRTE) is a two-day meeting, typically Friday and Saturday in the Spring, which rotates around the country based on NAM's regional structure. The conference is geared for faculty from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The conference consists of five components:

  • A Short Course in Computational Science
    This is a two-hour course to be held on Friday as the conference begins.
  • The Albert Turner Bharucha-Reid Lecture
    This is an hour-long talk which proceeds the Friday banquet.
  • Recognition Banquet
    This dinner takes place Friday evening.
  • Contributed Talks
    Eight faculty speakers may present on topics of their choice. Each faculty speaker has 25 minutes to present with 5 minutes of questions and answers. The talks will be held on Saturday.
  • Regional Panel Discussion
    A discussion to focus on issues relevant to the region in which the conference is held. The conference will close out on Saturday with this discussion.

The 2019 FCRTE will be held Friday April 26 and Saturday April 27 at Texas Southern University. Roderick Holmes is the local organizer. All of the events will either be at the Hilton University of Houston, or Room 156 in the Science Building (Building 165) at Texas Southern.
