MITRE Named a Top 10 Supporter of HBCU Engineering SchoolsMarch 2019
The MITRE Corporation has been named to the HBCU (historically Black college and university) Top Supporters List for 2019. MITRE placed eighth on the list, which is published by U.S. Black Engineer and Information Technology (USBE) magazine.
The "Top Supporters of HBCUs" list surveys the deans of the 15 ABET-accredited, HBCU engineering programs, and the corporate-academic alliance, Advancing Minorities' Interest in Engineering (AMIE). The survey asks these individuals to list the corporate and government/non-profit organizations that provide the most support to their schools. In completing the annual survey, the institutions consider the following factors: support for infrastructure modernization and enhancement, research and mentorship projects, participation on advisory councils, faculty development opportunities, scholarships, student projects, stipends, co-ops, and career opportunities.
“The Top Supporters of HBCU Engineering list is about employers that are helping to build America’s diverse science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) pipeline,” said Ty Taborn, publisher of USBE magazine.
