Big win for Two New Orleans HBCUs
Danielle Dreilinger of the Times Picayune writes about two local HBCUs — Dillard University and Xavier University — winning the College Pathways Pilot Project. The project is developed to strengthen the relationship between businesses and universities to help graduates transition into the workforce.
“This is transformational for Dillard,” said Carretta Cooke, director of the university’s career development center. “For the first time, a program will connect our academic affairs and career services to business stakeholders to enhance career readiness and placement in this increasingly competitive job market.”
