A survey published by US Black Engineer & Information Technology magazine lists the corporations and government organizations that are most supportive of America's historically Black engineering schools.
The magazine asked deans of the engineering programs at 14 historically black colleges and universities to list the corporations and government or non-profit organizations that provide the most support to their schools. The survey also received responses from Advancing Minorities' Interest in Engineering, a corporate-academic alliance.
"Doing this survey for the eleventh consecutive time, we are consistently finding many organizations that are doing their fair share in building the STEM pipeline," said Tyrone Taborn, editor in chief of US Black Engineer & Information Technology. STEM is an acronym for the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
