Morgan State University, the historically Black educational institution in Baltimore, has signed a partnership agreement with the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Division and the Explosive Ordinance Technology Division. The agreement will enable students at Morgan State University to receive academic and career advice from Navy personnel. Students can also participate in Navy research projects.
The Navy hopes to gain a recruiting edge. Captain Tom Smith, the commanding officer of the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Division, stated, “Diversity brings new views, perspectives, and problem solving approaches into our decision-making processes so we make better choices. Our partnership with Morgan State University helps us achieve these initiatives.”
