Alabama State University’s New Partnership With the U.S. Veterans Affairs Acquisition Academy

Alabama State University in Montgomery has partnered with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs Acquisition Academy to develop a high-quality curriculum in support of the university’s academic programs.

The partnership will provide the university with access to the United States Defense Acquisition University curriculum which they will use to offer a new course on acquisition and contracting to its undergraduate students by spring 2019 and a certificate program in acquisition, contracting, and logistics by fall 2020.

“This new partnership will allow graduates to be qualified and capable of earning jobs within the federal government, and will help many in the surrounding communities to renew or improve the critical skills that are part of the curriculum,” said Dr. Quinton T. Ross, Jr., President of Alabama State University. “This is both historic and exciting because we’re the only HBCU that has entered into a partnership with the VAAA, which is wonderful because it allows us to reach out to a community of underserved students in America.”
