Marcia Williams

North Carolina A&T State University
Greensboro, NC
I am Director of STEM/Sponsored Programs in the College of Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University, co-principal investigator and statewide project director for the North Carolina Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation program (NC-LSAMP), and co-principal investigator and administrative manager for the NSF/Innovation through Institutional Integration (I-3) project. I am a strong advocate for broadening the participation of underrepresented populations who major in STEM undergraduate and graduate degrees programs. Because of this passion, I have been instrumental in garnering more than $8 million in grants to support outreach programs and interdisciplinary faculty-led undergraduate research on campus and at national research laboratories. I serve as councilor in the Undergraduate Research Program Directors Division of the Council on Undergraduate Research, the CUR Broadening Participation Task Force, and advisory boards for the NSF Historically Black Colleges and Universities Undergraduate Program (HBCU-UP), the NIH Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) program, the NIH Research Internships in Science and Engineering (RISE) program, and the Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP). I earned my M.B.A. in management from Wake Forest University and Ph.D. in leadership studies from North Carolina A&T State University.
