African Scientific Research Institute - ASRI

African Scientific Research Institute - ASRI The ASRI is a leading, nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving African American culture as a legacy for future generations. Since its initial incorporation in 1999 and its approval in 2004 as a 501 (c) 3, ASRI has become central located on the UIC campus for promoting, coordinating and conducting early African research on a range of, cultural and public policy issues in both historical and contemporary rural/urban contexts.

Along with the Great Cities Institute unit, “INSTITUTE FOR RESEARCH ON RACE AND PUBLIC POLICY” (IRRPP) has become a critical resource as ASRI seeks to become the nation's leading public/private research institute striving to achieve the land-grant mission in a rural and urban setting. This new independent institute is based at the College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs (CUPPA), as a host of the IRRPP, serves as a incubator facility to ASRI expanding company operations. ASRI works very closely with a variety of UIC academic units to promote policy-relevant, multidisciplinary, collaborative research among scholars across campus. The central goal of producing basic and applied research is complemented by related education initiatives to enhance "academic excellence" and a range of service activities with both "rural" "urban" and "policy" relevance. These three major goals - of research, education and service - provide the foundation for the institute-based research projects, research training and service activities as well as strategic internal and external partnerships. Internal partnerships between IRRPP and various UIC colleges, departments and programs build on unique institutional strengths to enhance capacity and interdisciplinary synergy. Campus partnerships also promote strategic research networks, working groups, proposal writing teams and collaborative projects. External partnerships further expand funding prospects and opportunities for policy-relevant public service to the citizens of Illinois and beyond. Nine core priority areas guide the development of interdisciplinary research programs, curricula innovation and policy-related outreach and public service activities: POLICY-RELEVANT SCHOLARSHIP ON RACE AND BIOMOLECULAR ETHNIC DIVERSITY - Comparative Research on Race and Ethnic Diversity -1628-1888 Burial grounds investigation - African American Research and Public Policy Law for greater owner- ship [ACCESSION] - African Bio-historical Research and Public Policy on Human Grnome-1628-present ENGAGED RESEARCH ON PRESSING RACE AND PUBLIC POLICY ISSUE - Race, Empowerment and Nation Policy acquiring Cultural Ownership - Community Cultural Diversity and historical Cultural Economic Development - Race, Attitudes and Public Policy Guidelines on ethical for Bio-historical Research - Race, Education, and Cultural Heritages resources for Human Development - Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Bio-Health technologies clinical information systems as well imaging applications for training Medical investigators. - Policy and Social Justice implications on Ethical, Legal, guidelines of cultural resources and the preservation of descendent rights and values. Within each priority area ASRI directors have begun to formalize strategic partnerships with both UIC instructional units and partners outside the institute. These strategic partnerships function to: (1) expand the quantity, quality and relevance of research on pressing public policy issues important to the African communities; (2) promote capacity building within various institute’s academic units and external partners to achieve even greater levels of excellence; and (3) mobilize a growing network of UIC campus administrators, faculty, postdoctoral scholars, graduate students, undergraduates, and external partners in a collective effort to better achieve the institute's mission, goals and objectives. The basic strategy is to leverage core ASRI resources to produce measurable outcomes by: • Increasing external funding for policy-relevant research on [ancient] racial/ethnic disparities • Increasing related scholarly productivity and interdisciplinary collaboration with AFFLITATES. • Building ASRI/UIC campus-wide research capacity to address complex diversity challenges • Coordinating multi-ethnic exchanges in research, education and service activities • Promoting the development of underrepresented racial/ethnic minorities at the undergraduate, graduate,postdoctoral levels • Bridging research with public service, external outreach, and community engagement.
