Alabama State University Enters Into a Partnership With the U.S. Army

Alabama State University, the historically Black educational institution in Montgomery, has entered into a partnership with the U.S. Army that will give university students the opportunity to participate in the military’s research projects.

The agreement will enable STEM students and faculty to get hands-on experience working on Army defense research projects and to have enhanced research and education at the university through interaction with Department of Defense officials. The agreement also calls for the transfer of or development of technological resources and applications, such as sharing scientific, engineering and technological assets and professional expertise, and provides workforce development opportunities for students who want a career path to the Department of Defense.

Alabama State University President Quinton T. Ross Jr. stated that “our relationship with the Army will be strengthened and our students will benefit because of our ability to expose them to advanced technologies and training. This partnership will give our students the opportunity to experience and explore beyond their wildest dreams. This involvement will benefit them whether they choose a civilian career or if they choose a career in our armed forces.”

Carl Pettis, interim provost at Alabama State, added that “this is a five-year education partnership agreement which will encourage and enhance science, mathematics, and engineering education at all levels of education for the students currently enrolled and faculty currently employed by ASU.”
