Dr. Andrew Blake, associate professor of English in the Department of English and Foreign Languages, has published a book titled African Students Studying in America:  Their Experiences and Adjustment Problems at an HBCU, an abridged version.

This book explores the adjustment problems and experiences of international students who have studied in the United States of America.  First, it examines the varied adjustments that international students deal with in general.  Second, it investigates the experiences of African students at a historically black institution- Delaware State University, a rare study on Africans studying specifically at a historically black institution. 

Dr. Blake has presented papers at national conferences addressing the adjustment problems of international students on U.S. college campuses.  His study is referenced in the Center for Immigration Studies website.  Dr. Blake has also served as a staff writer for newspapers in Delaware and has served in administrative positions at DSU and Lincoln University, PA.
