National Transportation Center

The Urban Mobility and Equity Center

UMEC was established in 2016 to improve the mobility of people and goods in urban communities in a safe, environmentally sustainable, and equitable manner.  As a Tier-1 USDOT University Transportation Center, its research program developed new technologies, policies, and practices aimed at enhancing the transportation network. Over the course of the grant period, significant strides were made in investigating how automated and connected vehicles can contribute to these goals, and how equity concerns could be addressed amid these technological changes. UMEC was a consortium of three universities: Morgan State University, University of Mayrland, College Park, and Virginia Tech. As the lead, Morgan state was one of just two HBCUs in the country to head a Tier-1 UTC.
