Funding for research at A&T took noteworthy hike in FY 2009

The headline for a Feb. 19 story in the Triad Business Journal trumpets that “Research contracts up at A&T, down at UNCG”. The story goes on to say that “N.C. A&T State University won awards worth $57.7 million in the fiscal year that ended June 30, an increase of 25.9 percent from 2008. UNC Greensboro’s awards totaled $35.4 million, a decline of 8.7 percent.” The SAES gave the Business Journal some graphic support for the story. Dr. Millie Worku of the Department of Animal Sciences and Ashley Turner, an SAES graduate student, are pictured along with a one of the Holsteins at the University Farm’s Dairy Unit. According to Dr. Shirley Hymon-Parker, the SAES’s associate dean for Research, the Agricultural Research Program received $16,531,736 of the $57.7 million generated by research at A&T — about 28.6 percent of the total funding.
