Innovative partnerships have been piling up already in 2022 for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Today, FedEx has announced a new program designed “to build a pipeline of logistics and supply chain professionals.” CNBC reports that the company will be partnering with eight HBCUs for the program, which is an extension of its ongoing commitment that was established in 2021. “Our relationship with HBCUs began more than 20 years ago, and we are continuously working to develop initiatives and opportunities that create positive outcomes for students and faculty. The Student Ambassador Program is yet another way we are continuing to invest in these historical institutions as we build a better future, together,” FedEx President and Chief Operating Officer Raj Subramaniam told CNBC.
