Morgan State University will host U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg for a special visit and tour of the National Transportation Center lab. During the visit, Sec. Buttigieg will meet with student leaders and highlight President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and its investments in transportation equity. 

Morgan currently serves as one of two Historically Black College & University (HBCU) Transportation Center leads. Last year, the Department of Transportation invested $1.4 million in Morgan State University’s Urban Mobility & Equity Center, which researches all aspects of transportation – from evacuation in an emergency to pricing on toll highways to transit use and routes. 

While at Morgan, Sec. Buttigieg will learn more about the University's transportation-related degree programs and the School of Engineering. In addition, he will also experience presentations on the University's COVID-19 Dashboard and connected autonomous vehicles visualization, and demonstrations of Morgan's work with an autonomous wheelchair and robot dog and car/bicycle simulations.

The visit will be capped by a town hall discussion with students and faculty, on a variety of cross-disciplinary topics intersecting with the transporation needs of today's—and tomorrow's—urban landscape.

WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022 at 3:30 p.m. ET
