New Military Information Center Proposed at Historically Black Fayetteville State University

Fayetteville State University, the historically black educational institution in North Carolina, has announced plans to establish the North Carolina Center for Defense and Homeland Security. The center will act as a clearinghouse of information for military contractors and colleges and universities that seek to do business with the Department of Defense or the Department of Homeland Security. Startup funds for the center are expected to come from federal grant programs.

Fayetteville State University is located adjacent to Fort Bragg, one of the nation’s largest military facilities. The 82nd Airborne Division and the U.S. Special Forces Operations Command are both located at the base.
