Howard University Establishes Collaboration with U.S. Army

Howard University has announced a collaboration with the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command that establishes an Education Partnership Agreement between the two entities.

The new partnership, which will utilize CCDC assets to provide training and research opportunities for students in areas such as artificial intelligence, electronic devices, and unmanned machinery, will also offer participating students access to defense laboratory equipment.

“To solve the Army’s toughest technological challenges, we rely on the talent and expertise of bold, forward-thinking STEM professionals from a variety of backgrounds,” Maj. Gen. John George, CCDC commanding general, said in a statement. “Our partnership with Howard University reaffirms our commitment to invest in the success of our nation’s future innovators, who in turn support the success of our nation’s military.”

Howard Vice President of Research Bruce Jones added that the collaboration serves as an important asset to the HU research portfolio.

“Particularly as this concerns our institutional effort to expand faculty and student opportunities in STEM-related areas that are mission-critical to Howard University,” Jones said.

While Howard undergraduates will have the opportunity for research internships, students interested in defense laboratory assignments will receive academic credit for their work on defense lab research projects.

Students will also be eligible for graduate and postdoctoral fellowships, as well as have access to research appointments via Oakridge Institute for Science and Education and the Thurgood Marshall College Fund to increase underrepresented groups in STEM.
