The mission of the Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program (MSIPP) is to create and support a sustainable career pathway that prepares a diverse workforce of talented students to make immediate and significant contributions to the Nuclear Security Enterprise (NSE). To achieve this mission, MSIPP develops strategic partnerships between Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs), and the NSE, investing in student enrichment programs, curriculum development, research efforts, and internship opportunities. MSIPP aligns investments in university capacity and workforce development with the NNSA mission to develop the needed skills and talent for the NSE’s enduring technical workforce while enhancing research and educational capacity at underrepresented colleges and universities.
