Alabama A&M University Creates a Number of New Educational Opportunities for Students

The Alabama A&M University board of trustees paved the way for several new partnerships and programs to enhance recruitment and expand opportunities for students.

The board approved a new agreement with Girls Incorporated of Huntsville to create a STEM Center on the campus and provide programming for up to 400 students in grades 1-12. Alabama A&M also entered into a new partnership with the Ross University School of Medicine in Barbados to collaborate to increase admission opportunities for AAMU students.

The board also approved several new partnerships geared toward bolstering recruitment for graduate programs. New agreements with Albany State University in Georgia, Benedict College in South Carolina, Fort Valley State University in Georgia, Lane College in Tennessee, Lemoyne-Owen College in Memphis, Mississippi Valley State University, Paine College in Georgia, Philander Smith University in Arkansas, and Tougaloo College in Mississippi will facilitate the admission of qualified graduates into AAMU’s School of Graduate Studies.

“This university is on an upward trajectory,” said Roderick Watts, president pro tempore of the board of trustees. “In order to go new places, we’re going to have to do the things that are uncomfortable. Much of the work we will do together has never been done before. Some people see problems. I see opportunities for increased growth and development.”
