FSU Honors Faculty and Staff for FY2012 Grant Activity Contributions
On April 10, 2013, FSU's Office of Sponsored Research and Programs (OSRP) and Research Office hosted a ceremony to honor the university's grant activity contributions in the Olivia Chavis Room of the Rudolph Jones Center at Fayetteville State University (FSU).
The FSU grant award recognition program provides an opportunity to acknowledge the efforts of faculty and staff who engage in externally sponsored research and programs. The Grants Recognition Ceremony is designed to formally recognize faculty and staff for their grantsmanship accomplishments that occurred in the previous fiscal year. The awards are aligned with FSU's commitment to excellence in research, scholarship, service and community.
The process of both writing a proposal, and managing it once it is awarded, can be a daunting task, but the benefits to a university from increased funding for additional research and programs can be invaluable to the growth of the institution. This point was conveyed to an audience of approximately 45 attendees by Dr. Jon Young, Provost and Vice-Chancellor of Academic Affairs, in his grant awards overview. The ceremony included a performance by FSU faculty member, Dr. Brooksie Harrington of the English Department. Certificates mounted on mahogany plaques were presented to the honorees by FSU Chancellor, Dr. James Anderson. The Chancellor was accompanied by the Chancellor for the Day, Ms Dara Colon.
The ceremony concluded with an address by Chancellor Anderson. Dr. Anderson recognized the hard work and dedication required to submit quality proposals and to be awarded in a highly competitive arena to support the University's mission. He commended Dr. Teresa Thompson-Pinckney for the compliments received from the Department of Education on her proposal writing skills.

Fayetteville, North Carolina – On April 4, 2012, in the Olivia Chavis Room of the Rudolph Jones Center at Fayetteville State University, FSU’s Office for University Preparatory Programs (OSRP) hosted a ceremony to honor the University’s outstanding grant writers. The ceremony, held under the supervision of OSRP Director, Dr. Leslie Evelyn, and the Associate Vice-Chancellor for Research, Dr. Daryush Ila, praised the efforts of eighteen of the University’s faculty and staff, who were awarded in seven categories of excellence. Among those awarded was Dr. Terri Moore-Brown, Chairperson of FSU’s Department of Social Work.
Dr. Moore-Brown received the award for Excellence in Student Support. This award was given to honor the faculty or staffperson who received grant funding that proved instrumental in supporting the educational goals of the greatest number of students. During the last fiscal year, Dr. Moore-Brown was awarded $214,570 from the Department of the Army and the Army Medical Center to establish a Master of Social Work (MSW) program that allows active-duty enlisted soldiers to earn their MSW degree while continuing their military commitment. Dr. Moore-Brown’s program has already helped dozens of armed forces members achieve their MSW degree. Many of these student-soldiers intend to use their education and training to help families in their communities after their military careers are over.
The grant writing process can be a daunting task, but the benefits to a University from increased funding for additional research and programs can be invaluable to the growth of the institution. During the ceremony’s opening address, Dr. Jon Young, Provost and Vice-Chancellor of Academic Affairs at FSU expressed this perspective to an audience of approximately 50 attendees. After a reception that included a performance by the FSU Chamber ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Diane Phoenix Neal, acrylic tapered-top awards were presented to the Dr. Moore-Brown and the other honorees, along with certificates from FSU Chancellor, Dr. James Anderson.
The ceremony concluded with an address by Chancellor Anderson. Dr. Anderson emphasized the creativity, dedication, and commitment to excellence of the awardees, as well as other individuals at FSU who seek additional funding to support the University’s mission. Faculty and staff who navigate the sometimes complex and time consuming process of designing research or educational programs do so in addition to their established responsibilities. The selflessness of Dr. Terrie Moore-Brown’s efforts as first a teacher and administrator, and now as a successful grant writer and grant program director, are reflective of Fayetteville State University’s commitment to excellence. Congratulations to Dr. Terri Moore Brown, Department Chair of the Department of Social Work, at Fayetteville State University.
