Morgan State University Teams Up With Navy Unit in Educational Partnership

Morgan State University, the historically Black educational institution in Baltimore, has signed a new five-year educational partnership agreement with Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division, which is headquartered in Indian Head, Maryland.

The five-year partnership enables the unit to provide Morgan students and faculty the benefit of staff expertise and unique facilities and equipment for research. Officials at the center will assist students with academic and career advice and provide research projects for Morgan students and faculty relevant to U.S. Navy technical applications.

“Being able to partner with the Naval Surface Warfare Center is an invaluable experiential learning opportunity that will provide our students and faculty with access to a wealth of expertise in the STEM fields,” said Morgan State University President David Wilson. “In addition to the obvious educational benefits, this partnership also positively positions our students to have a pipeline to high valued careers following their graduation.”

Commanding Officer at the center, Captain Scott Kraft, notes that “this partnership provides us the opportunity to not only mentor these students by sharing our knowledge and expertise, but to also show them first-hand how their STEM education can have far-reaching impact – hopefully inspiring some of these great minds to join us in future endeavors supporting our warfighters.”.
