ADOLPHUS "TOL" TOLIVER AWARD
The Tol Award is named for Dr. Adolphus Toliver, who passed on March 26, 2013.
Dr. Toliver–or Tol, as he preferred to be called–was a staunch supporter of diversity. His vision and dedication to increasing the participation of underrepresented minority students in biomedical research resulted in the development and improvement of many NIH programs.
Study suggests that mentors and research advisors should share translational impact statements with undergraduate research assistants. This helps them to understand both the significance and benefits of their project. –“The Role of Altruistic Values in Motivating Underrepresented Minority Students for Biomedicine” (Thoman, 2015)

This conference was established to facilitate dissemination and exchange of hypothesis-based research on interventions and initiatives that broaden participation in science and engineering research careers. The conference is designed to create a dialogue among behavioral/social science and education researchers, evaluators, and faculty in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields who participate in intervention programs.
Research being conducted by The Center for the Advancement of STEM Leadership (CASL) may show that “leading with soul” is directly connected to the success of STEM students at historically Black colleges and universities.(read more)
