In June, Gallaudet University entered into a partnership with nine other Washington, D.C.-area universities as part of the Chesapeake Crescent Innovation Alliance (CCIA). The CCIA serves to leverage the wealth of research, knowledge, and technology in the D.C. Metro area to bring more jobs and investment dollars to the region.
The CCIA, which was formed in 2008, helps its member universities communicate and share resources more efficiently and effectively. The strategic partnership aims to boost the local economy, to generate jobs, and to assist start-up companies in the capital region, while helping each university advance its respective mission.
Gallaudet joins University System of Maryland, Johns Hopkins University, George Washington University, Georgetown University, Howard University, George Mason University, Virginia Tech, University of Virginia, and James Madison University in the CCIA.
“Working together, the members of the Chesapeake Crescent Innovation Alliance can accomplish much more to attract funding and jobs, and to facilitate collaborative research,” said Gallaudet University President T. Alan Hurwitz. “This partnership helps focus our efforts, as we ensure the Washington, D.C. region remains the epicenter of education, research, innovation, economic growth, and employment. Gallaudet is proud to be a member of the CCIA and we are excited to see the fruits of this collaboration.”
