Two HBCUs in Ohio Team Up With the U.S. Small Business Administration

Wilberforce University and Central State University, historically Black educational institutions in Ohio, have entered into a partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration, The agreement calls for increasing opportunities for students at the HBCUs in the state’s entrepreneurial ecosystem through curriculum development, internships, and job fairs.

Joining in the alliance will be the Cincinnati African American Chamber of Commerce, the Central Ohio African American Chamber of Commerce, the City of Columbus, and the Ohio Department of Transportation.

The Small Business Administration hopes to strengthen this entrepreneurial community by raising the capacity of HBCUs to participate in federally funded programs, strengthen access resources to fulfill their educational and service missions, and provide HBCUs with the information needed to access and compete for federal grants and contracts.
