Mission Statement

he NCCU Fab Lab is a digital prototyping platform for innovation and invention, providing stimulus for computational learning and local entrepreneurship.


The NCCU Fab Lab is the culmination of a dream that began with Clarence Williams, a 1961 NCCU graduate and professor emeritus at MIT, and was completed by Topper Carew, director of the Innovation and Inclusion Initiative at the MIT Media Lab, who selected the campus of NCCU to be the first HBCU campus for a chartered fab lab by Fab Academy. This vision was accepted by the late Chancellor Debra Saunders-White, who commemorated the opening of the NCCU Fab Lab on May 15, 2015, in the Mary Townes Science Complex.
