Boeing, Lockheed Martin among Top Supporters of HBCU Engineering Schools


BALTIMORE

A recent survey conducted by Career Communications Group Inc. (CCG) has found that 42 companies and government agencies are considered most supportive of historically Black engineering schools.

CCG asked the deans of the 10 ABET-accredited HBCU programs to list five corporate or government sponsors they feel contribute most to their institutional mission. Some deans listed more than five, and there were many duplications. But, in all, 42 separate organizations were named.

"This ranking reflects the perception the deans have of the total level of support they receive," says Tyrone D. Taborn, CCG's founder and chief executive officer. "The organizations they named have moved beyond their traditional comfort level by supporting HBCUs. They see these schools as more than a place to recruit employees. These 42 companies and agencies are doing things above and beyond their traditional business-university relationship."

Six of 10 HBCU deans ranked The Boeing Company as a top supporter. Lockheed Martin Corp., was named by five deans. General Motors Corp. and Raytheon Co.
