Signing of UNLV's Mentor-Protégé Agreement with NASA, Teledyne Brown Engineering Set for Nov. 18

Nov. 13, 2015

The UNLV campus community is invited to a ceremonial signing of the NASA mentor-protégé agreement with its contractor, Teledyne Brown Engineering, set for Nov. 18 at 9 a.m. in the Barrick Museum Lobby. The 12-month agreement is the first such agreement between a Marshall Space Flight Center prime contractor and a minority-serving institution (UNLV).

Through this agreement, UNLV students can participate in developing multi-media training for International Space Station Payload Ground Support Personnel and Payload Developers.

The NASA Mentor-Protégé Program was established in 2008 by NASA’s Office of Small Business Programs. It allows NASA prime contractors opportunities to enter into agreements with small businesses and historically black colleges and universities/minority serving institutions under their subcontracting programs, to establish long-term relationships, enhance technical capabilities, and enable protégés to successfully compete for larger, more complex prime contract and subcontract awards.
