Dr. Phillip Archer,
|Never before has there been such a need for science and technology applications than is needed in today’s world. Never before have there been so many career opportunities for persons interested in science and technology based enterprise, particularly for students of color. The need for uniquely skilled workers particularly from under-represented groups in and from under-served populations has never been greater. Yet many national organizations and institutions are unaware of how to fill the workforce void created in part by an ever changing world economy and shifting demographic patterns. This is where an institution like Virginia Union University comes in to play; particularly in our school of Mathematics, Sciences and Technology (MST). Here in the MST, we work hard to fashion just the type program specific to your individual goals.
We not only deliver instruction in pace with peer institutions across this nation, our efforts are equally directed at developing a critical mass of skill sets in trainees, identified to be most useful in today’s complex and dynamic workforce. Our diverse group of scientists and technical staff are among the best in the world at what they do and they do it with pride and distinction. Many of our science alumni have been successful in the health professions, private industry and in higher education.
Still others have combined their discipline specific skills with leadership skills learned here to become avid professionals in regulatory agencies, law and government at all levels. So, when one really looks at what is important for an educational experience in science and technology; few look no further after looking at VUU.
