Coppin State University is among 12 minority-serving colleges and universities that will receive $33.5 million in federal money to expand broadband internet access to underserved communities, officials said Monday. Federal, state and university officials made the announcement at a ceremony at Coppin, which will receive nearly $4 million as part of the program. “The internet and mobile technology are critical tools for accessing and sharing information every day,” said Coppin State University President Anthony L. Jenkins. “Socioeconomic status should not determine access, or opportunities for individuals or our communities, in Baltimore or anywhere else.”
