Howard University is making history after winning a $90 million contract for military research, according to the university.
The university is the first Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) to lead a university-affiliated research center (UARC), which will be funded by the U.S. Air Force (DAF) and Department of Defense (DOD), officials said.
Howard hosted U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III and U.S. Secretary of the Air Force Frank Kendall to make the announcement Monday at the Founder’s Library at 2 p.m.
Students, faculty, staff, local government, members of Congress, the Air Force and Department of Defense staff were in attendance.
