The broad long range objectives of Minority Institutions Research Development Program (MIRDP) at Grambling State University focus on research in the areas of mental health, biobehavioral science, and alcohol studies. These objectives include: 1) Strengthening research in those areas; 2) Developing, expanding and increasing the capacity of faculty to conduct research in those areas; 3) Augmenting and strengthening the institutional research infrastructure; 4) Encouraging minority students awareness and participation in research in those areas; and 5) Increasing the number of minority students who enter research careers in those areas.
