Historically Black Fayetteville State University in North Carolina has signed an agreement with the U.S. Coast Guard that will establish a student research partnership between the two institutions.
Students at Fayetteville State will be able to participate in research projects with Coast Guard personnel. The Coast Guard hopes that the partnership with Fayetteville State University will lead to increased diversity in the ranks of the service.
Vice Admiral Robert Parker of the Coast Guard stated, “The formal agreement is a wonderful opportunity for Coast Guard personnel to collaborate on research projects with the bright students at Fayetteville State University. In addition, I will personally partner with FSU to strengthen the Coast Guard’s ties with HBCUs and share what the service does with a diverse culture of students.”
