The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, also known as CCDC, discovers and develops cutting-edge technologies that empower and protect American Soldiers and ensure their safe return home. CCDC civilians are recognized internationally as experts in their field, which span the full spectrum of science and engineering disciplines.

CCDC is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Futures Command, which is modernizing the way the Army does business by creating a space of endless possibilities to explore, develop, and test new methods, organizations, and technologies. Above all else, Army Futures Command and CCDC want to make sure Soldiers have what they need, before they need it, to protect tomorrow… today.

At CCDC, we understand the importance of diversity in the workforce and that diversity and inclusion create advantages in performance as well as innovation through diversity of thought. CCDC participates in various affinity events each year, to conduct recruitment and outreach efforts, particularly critical outreach to the underrepresented populations in the workforce.

We also remains committed to the development and support of Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) capabilities in underserved and underrepresented educational institutions. These institutions provide a wealth of knowledge and diversity of thought and perspective which is critical to the success of addressing CCDC's mission and challenges. Below are some of the HBCU/MI programs CCDC participates in:
