    CHIPS HBCU

    May 6, 2024 — Central State University (CSU) has officially joined the CHIPS for HBCUs Consortium. This strategic move aligns CSU with a network of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) dedicated to advancing research and development in the semiconductor industry.

    The CHIPS for HBCUs Consortium, announced by the U.S. Department of Commerce earlier in February this year, is a groundbreaking initiative aimed at fostering collaboration among HBCUs. Under the leadership of the Georgia Institute of Technology, the consortium is set to play a pivotal role in diversifying and strengthening the semiconductor workforce and research capabilities in the United States. The Biden Administration has pledged a significant investment of $5 billion to support this initiative, which is part of the broader CHIPS and Science Act. This act is a legislative milestone that provides funds to bolster domestic production of semiconductors and authorizes various programs and activities of federal science agencies.

    CSU’s participation in the consortium is expected to provide unparalleled opportunities for its students and faculty, enabling them to contribute to critical advancements in chip technology. The collaboration will also ensure that CSU is at the forefront of addressing the existential issue of chip production and supply chain resilience in America.

    The CHIPS for HBCUs Consortium is more than just a technological venture; it represents a commitment to inclusivity and diversity in a field that is foundational to the modern economy. With CSU’s rich history and dedication to excellence in education, its inclusion in the consortium is a testament to the university’s potential to shape the future of technology and innovation. Central State University is a proud member of the CHIPS for HBCUs Consortium, committed to driving innovation and diversity in the semiconductor industry.
