Tuskegee University was named to participate in the first University Affiliated Research Center in partnership with the U.S. Department of Defense with an HBCU focus. This is the 15th UARC, but the first associated with HBCUs and the first sponsored by the Air Force. U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd J. Austin III made the announcement at Howard University, where the consortium will be based.

In February of 2022, Tuskegee University hosted a plethora of events during Black History Month. Black History Month serves as a means of highlighting events of the past, events that have paved the way for the present.

Tuskegee University wrapped up Black History Month with a panel including the deans from each college on campus. This panel was an opportunity for each dean to showcase their respective colleges as well as the work being done for the years […]

Tuskegee University’s College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) is the largest college across the university. It houses a diverse range of departments. It covers some of the most foundational fields of science/knowledge, encapsulated in its name Arts and Sciences. To get a better grasp of what is going on in CAS, we sat down with Dr. Prakash, Dean of the College, for an interview about the state of CAS. Thinking about the job description of a college dean, many may imagine someone sitting at a fancy, dark brown desk, making decisions concerning the educational well-being of the college. However, after […]
Aside from the massive academic benefits and sense of history, culture is one of the main draws for most students when coming to the illustrious Tuskegee University: The chants, keying people, homecoming, and a plethora of other traditions that make Tuskegee what it is. But this school year, there seems to be an astounding lack of participation and appreciation for culture and tradition, especially from the underclassmen. Whether it be not knowing the chants, not coming to Student Government Association (SGA) events, not filling the shed, not dressing for Fried Chicken Wednesday, or just a general sense of unenthusiasm, there […]
