Virginia Union University

Director

Center for Undergraduate Research

Dr. Carleitta Paige-Anderson is the Director of the Center for Undergraduate Research (CUR) and faculty in the Department of Natural Science. As the CUR Director, she is charged with providing leadership and direction for all undergraduate research and creative inquiry endeavors. The Center is a university resource to support all stakeholders in the research process, to include faculty mentors, student skill development, course-based research experiences and community partnerships. Since 2010, Dr. Paige-Anderson has worked diligently to integrate research skills into the academic curriculum and catalyze the use of this pedagogical practice to all campus disciplines. As an infectious disease biochemist, she has used her background in studying pathogenic bacteria as a basis for teaching basic science principles. In addition, she implemented this novel teaching paradigm at Universitas Airlangga in Surbaya, Indonesia as a 2013-2014 Senior Fulbright Scholar. Her commitment to undergraduate research and Virginia Union University (VUU) is very personal. A 2003 VUU alumna, Dr. Paige-Anderson participated in the Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program, sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. She attributes her professional success to the experiences afforded by the MARC program and believes that all students can benefit from similar opportunities. Dr. Paige-Anderson earned a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Wake Forest University, completed a post-doctoral research appointment at the Johns Hopkins University in the Center for Tuberculosis Research, and has on two independent occasions served as the faculty-lead for Department of Homeland Security Summer Research teams.
