Tuajuanda Jordan
Tuajuanda Jordan Dr. Jordan received a B.S. in chemistry from Fisk University in 1982 and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Purdue University in 1989. She did her postdoctoral training at the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine in cell biophysics and pharmacognosy. She held the following positions at Xavier University of Louisiana, starting in 1994: assistant and associate professor of chemistry, associate dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, director of the Model Institutions of Excellence Program, and associate vice president for academic affairs. She was a visiting scientist at the University of Michigan in biophysics. She currently serves on the Minority Advisory Board of the Keystone Symposia and is a member of the National Science Foundation's Committee of Visitors.
She has served as a member and chair of the Minority Biomedical Research Sciences Subcommittee and as a member of the Minority Access to Research Careers Subcommittee for the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, National Institutes of Health. In addition to grants to support her research, she obtained National Science Foundation grants for science education. Her research was concerned with elucidating the catalytic mechanism of HMG-CoA reductase in a pseudomonad and the characterization of a unique apolipoprotein involved in the complement cascade. At HHMI, she directs the Science Education Alliance and oversees the national genomics research initiative. Her honors include being named a Purdue University Distinguished Alumni from the School of Agriculture in 2008. In 2009, Jordan was named a "revolutionary mind" by Seed magazine.

"The question we were faced with was what to do with the students once they came out of that first class," says Tuajuanda Jordan, the SEA's director. "So we put that question out there to our faculty: How do we develop courses that will complement what is coming out of our freshman-level class?"
Jordan invited the 27 schools currently participating in the SEA to apply, and three were accepted.
Jordan said that some of the classes could be available to the larger science education community by the 2011-2012 school year.
Jordan hopes that summer sabbaticals will become a regular offering for faculty who participate in programs funded through the SEA. In the future, she envisions opportunities for faculty members to explore the development of new courses or modules based on their own research or collaborations with faculty in other disciplines.

"This is one example of the kind of innovative curricula and teaching methods that the SEA will disseminate," said Tuajuanda C. Jordan, HHMI senior program officer and director of the SEA. Jordan was formerly associate vice president of academic affairs at Xavier University of Louisiana.
"We are trying to catch students early - before they have a chance to become bored or overwhelmed by the typical large introductory science course," said Jordan.
"In the genomics course, our goal is to leverage the knowledge and experience of educators supported by HHMI over the past two decades to create a national course that will make it possible for undergraduates to have an authentic research experience," said Jordan.
Jordan says the long-term goal of the genomics course is to provide students with a challenging research project that results in the complete genome characterization of a total of at least 12 unique bacteriophages per year, leading to peer-reviewed publications with student co-authors in mainstream scientific journals and science-education-focused journals.
Based on the pilot-course experience, Jordan and her collaborators will develop a resource guide for the course and design a training workshop for faculty to be held during summer 2008.
The SEA staff is now beginning formal recruitment of the first 12 participating institutions that will implement this unique course during the 2008-2009 academic year. The goal, according to Jordan, is to identify a mix of colleges and universities to participate with an expectation that up to 20 students would take that course at each location.
