ORAU MSI Research Council
ORAU and MSI Research Council to develop a strategic plan for advancing research and education capabilities at these institutions
Our nation’s historically black colleges and universities and minority-serving educational institutions are often untapped resources, abounding in talent, ingenuity and expertise but often lacking in the material resources necessary for scientific research.
That’s why ORAU places a high priority on building relationships between these schools and some of the larger laboratories and research universities in America.
Among the full complement of ORAU member institutions are universities that comprise the Minority Serving Institutions Research Council.
Members of the MSI Research Council are all engaged in leading-edge science and technology and are recognized as competitive and strategic business partners.
