The AGLS Council welcomes Jacqueline Washington (Delaware State U) as the Council's HCBU Representative.

Dr. Jacqueline Aldridge Washington serves as the Director of General Education and University Studies at Delaware State University. Her specific focus is to improve retention and successful academic persistence of first-year students. Collaboratively, General Education and University Studies facilitate academic program services that are proactive, comprehensive, and oriented toward fostering successful matriculation of DSU students.

Prior to her current position, Dr. Washington served as the Assistant Dean for Access and Academic Development Programs in the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Delaware.  She was primarily responsible for overseeing the expansion of the college’s academic program; Network of Undergraduate Collaborative Experiences for Underrepresented Scholars. Dr. Washington has coordinated academic support programs that focused on retention and persistence of historically underrepresented minority students, first-generation and low-income students in the life/health sciences at both two and four-year institutions. Additionally, she has been instrumental in securing funding from (NIH, DOD and HHMI) for three essential academic research programs. Furthermore, Dr. Washington managed ongoing research programs, program budgets and operations of the NIH Bridges to the Baccalaureate and DoD Prostate Cancer Research multi-institutional partnerships. She also worked closely with faculty and the Office of Undergraduate Research and Experiential Learning to strengthen and expand institutional partnerships with HBCUs in the mid-Atlantic region.
