Employee of the Quarter

Let me introduce myself, Dayna Littleton, the new Program Coordinator supporting the ACCEL Program at Delaware State University. I am originally from Connecticut and grew up in a “science education” household where my mother was a high school Biology teacher and my stepfather was a professor of Biology; his research focused on birds of prey worldwide and he published articles on avian ecology and authored some books, “The Great Horned Owl” being just one. I have a bachelor’s degree in Political Science. I am a mother to two teenage girls. My one daughter is a senior interested in studying biology in college. Their father is also a high school Biology teacher, so it must be in her blood. We have resided in Smyrna, DE for the past 17 years.
I am not a stranger to grant management having come from the Office of Sponsored Programs at DSU. In my new role, I will be assisting our leadership, Dr. Sangeeta Gupta, faculty and PI’s with their financial and administrative needs in addition to coordinating the activities of ACCEL with our collaborators. In the next few weeks, I plan to get acquainted with our partners at the University of Delaware, ChristianaCare, Nemours and the Medical University of South Carolina. Please feel free to reach out to me to say hello and share any information or ideas you might feel would help us in making our ACCEL Program a success.
