Shorter College in North Little Rock announced a partnership with the federal Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement to promote workplace diversity and provide opportunities for students to learn about careers at the bureau.
The agreement calls for the bureau and the historically Black college to establish a framework for collaboration that provides opportunities for students to learn about some of the agency's workplace platforms, including science and technology, engineering, computer science, and mathematics.
In a news release, the bureau said it will help educate students about numerous human resource professions, administrative areas, equal employment opportunity professions, and generalist fields.
“BSEE's agreement with Shorter College represents our commitment to meeting our strategic goals for creating a diverse, engaged, and mission driven workforce,” Kevin Sligh, director of the bureau, said in the release. “Under this agreement, BSEE will have the opportunity to support the development of a diverse talent pool of students and help qualified students participate in our internships and workforce opportunities.”
Shorter College is a private, not-for-profit, faith based, two-year liberal arts college.
