Increasing the Role of HBCUs in Federal Contracting

Norfolk State University, the NSU Cybersecurity Complex and the National Minority Technology Council Looking Forward Research & Development joined forces to determine how Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) can have a larger share of federal research and development contracts.


Student Researchers were engaged in industry analysts work roles to benchmark current assets and risks of the HBCU ecosystem and discover the validity of HBCUs becoming Anchor Institutions for community outcomes in Opportunity Zones located around HBCU campuses across the nation.

Advisory to Smart HBCU Interagency Cluster

Historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have made, and continue to make, extraordinary contributions to the general welfare and prosperity of our country.


The Community Outcomes event scheduled for November 8, 2018 at the Norfolk State University Cybersecurity Complex serves a primary mission of the Presidential Executive Order 13779.  


The event was developed based on a national need to understand the strategic risks and opportunities at HBCUs.  Student Researchers will be asked to conduct a review of research data and participate in a Cybersecurity Analyst activity.


Norfolk State University's Cybersecurity Complex has secured over $42 million in federal funding to support cybersecurity efforts and is nationally known as a Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education.  


The NSU Cybersecurity Complex Executive Director, Dr. Aurelia Williams, has recently been recognized as a best practice leader for Cybersecurity by the White House Initiative on HBCUs.


The National Minority Technology Council Looking Forward Research & Development program office is focusing on strengthening HBCUs through enhanced  institutional planning and development and infrastructure enhancements through private/public partnerships that include the use of technology.
