From the Executive Summary: "This is the Department of Homeland Security's Annual Performance Report on Executive Agency Actions to Assist Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2004. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is committed to supporting the objectives of Executive Order 13256. DHS is committed to increase the number of HBCU students participating in internships and other student employment programs. These students are afforded an opportunity to acquire the specific skill sets to meet the Department's emerging operational needs. The Department also participated in employee and faculty exchange programs via the Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) as a means of developing and enhancing DHS-related curricula at the HBCUs. Recruitment and outreach were also key strategies for the continued support of the HBCUs initiative during this reporting period. Although a Department-wide plan was not established for FY 2004, the Performance Report reflects the existing and long-standing relationships between DHS organizational elements with HBCUs and surrounding communities. For instance, DHS organizational elements awarded a total of $950,756 to HBCUs in FY 2004, which represents 9.3% of the total awards projected for Institutes of Higher Education (IHEs)."
